The tendency of glioblastoma multiforme(GBM) to metastasize to the cerebrospinal fluid is well documented. However, symptomatic intradural extramedullary metastasis of GBM in the spinal cord are rarely reported. A 31-year-old female with a previously treated supratentorial GBM presented with back pain and lower extremities weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging of the thoracic spine demonstrated an intradural extramedullary mass at levels of T2-T4 and arachnoid membrane enhancement. The patient underwent an operation. Pathologic diagnosis was confirmed as spinal metastases of GBM. We present a case of spinal metastases from supratentorial GBM presented with paraparesis.
