Gliosarcoma is a rare highly malignant (WHO grade IV) primary intra axial neoplasm. It is often considered a histological variant of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Pathologically, the tumour is very similar to a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) but with an added sarcomatous component (the tumour comprises of both glial and mesenchymal elements). This is a histologically proved case of gliosarcoma.
