The even­tu­al­ity ­that 2 or ­more tu­mours are ­present in the ­same sub­ject is not fre­quent ­with an in­ci­dence rang­ing ­from 1.5% to 8%. The au­thors de­scribe the ­case of a 68-­year-old man suf­fer­ing ­from sol­i­tary mul­ti­forme gli­o­blas­to­ma, sub­mit­ted to com­bined treat­ment (to­tal re­mov­al and chem­o­ther­a­py), ­died 4 ­months af­ter treat­ment for a mul­ti­ple gli­o­blas­to­ma. It is pos­sible ­that chem­o­ther­a­py did not pro­tect pa­tients ­against the oc­cur­rence of a sec­ond le­sion and, per­haps, may ­have an in­duc­tive ef­fect, as ob­served by ­some au­thors.
