Glioblastoma (GBM) is a rapid-growing, central nervous system neoplasm. We report a case of GBM with extensive intramedullary lumbar drop metastasis and highly unusual osseous spine metastasis from a primary infratentorial GBM ten years after initial diagnosis, which, to our knowledge, has not been described.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common cancers in males and particularly tends to metastasize to bone. Currently, metastatic bone disease is incurable, and new therapies need to be developed....
Some patients with splenic angiosarcoma initially manifest thrombocytopenia owing to hypersplenism or tumor-related bone marrow fibrosis. The diagnosis of bone marrow metastasis in patients with splen...
Intraductal carcinoma of the prostate (IDC-P) and bone metastasis have been both identified to associate with unfavorable clinical outcome of the prostate carcinoma (PCa). Our objective is to examine ...
Papillary adenocarcinomas of the stomach are rare and associated with a high rate of lymphovascular invasion and distant metastasis. However, the association between papillary adenocarcinoma and bone ...
Bone metastasis is associated with cancer-related death in patients with prostate cancer (PCa). Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play critical roles in tumor progression of PCa. Nevertheless, the biolog...
Bone metastasis (i.e. cancer cell spreading to bone) is the major clinical problem of advanced breast cancer patients. Bone metastasis is not curable nor preventable. Currently available t...
Bone metastasis causes bone destruction and skeletal related events (SRE) including compression fracture, hypercalcemia, and spinal cord compression. Therefore, palliative treatments for p...
Breast cancers are among the cancers that metastasize the most to the skeleton. The appearance of bone metastasis, whether they are initials or during a relapse, is a turning point of the ...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well palliative radiation therapy works in reducing pain in patients with cancer that has spread from the original (primary) tumor to the bone (b...
Study to determine effectiveness and safety of zoledronic acid and whether it has a pharmaco-economic impact in prostate cancer with bone metastasis.
The infratentorial compartment that contains the CEREBELLUM and BRAIN STEM. It is formed by the posterior third of the superior surface of the body of the sphenoid (SPHENOID BONE), by the occipital, the petrous, and mastoid portions of the TEMPORAL BONE, and the posterior inferior angle of the PARIETAL BONE.
Intracranial tumors originating in the region of the brain inferior to the tentorium cerebelli, which contains the cerebellum, fourth ventricle, cerebellopontine angle, brain stem, and related structures. Primary tumors of this region are more frequent in children, and may present with ATAXIA; CRANIAL NERVE DISEASES; vomiting; HEADACHE; HYDROCEPHALUS; or other signs of neurologic dysfunction. Relatively frequent histologic subtypes include TERATOMA; MEDULLOBLASTOMA; GLIOBLASTOMA; ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; CRANIOPHARYNGIOMA; and choroid plexus papilloma (PAPILLOMA, CHOROID PLEXUS).
Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle.

The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
