Abstract: Cervical glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is rare, and its early diagnosis and management is crucial to patient survival. In the young population, it’s even more difficult to diagnose. The main challenges in GBM therapy are associated with the location of the disease and its complex and heterogeneous biology. Here, we present a case of a 35-year-old female patient admitted due to complain of pain in her right lower limb. She reported the evolution of the condition for dysesthesia in upper limbs and lower limbs 4 weeks ago. MRI showed an intramedullary lesion extending from C2 to C5. The patient was managed surgically. The purpose of this report is to document this rare condition, especially in the young age group, and reveal the current knowledge regarding intramedullary GBM.
