Metastatic spread of malignant astrocytomas is rare and documented in very few patients with this tumor. Both pathologists and clinicians may confront more of these cases as the patients live longer. We present a 40-year-old-man with glioblastoma multiforme metastasizing to the supraclavicular lymph node after surgery. The tumor was located at the parietal convexity and several lymphadenopathies occured after surgery.
