Gliosarcome primitif du cervelet : à propos d’un cas

Primary gliosarcoma of cerebellum: case report

Résumé

Le gliosarcome est une tumeur rare d’origine astrocytaire. Elle est classée par l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) comme une variante du glioblastome de grade IV. C’est une tumeur caractérisée par une double composante gliale et sarcomateuse. Classiquement cette tumeur est localisée au niveau de l’étage supratentoriel. Nous rapportons un cas rare de gliosarcome cérébelleux chez un homme de 60 ans. L’aspect radiologique était en faveur d’un glioblastome et l’examen anatomopathologique a conclu à un gliosarcome. L’évolution était marquée par le décès du malade.

Abstract

Gliosarcoma is a rare tumor of astrocytic origin. It’s classified by theWorld Health Organization (WHO) as a variant of glioblastoma grade IV. It’s characterised by a gliomatous and a sarcomatous proliferation. Conventionally, this tumor is localized at the supratentorial floor.We report a case of a cerebellar gliosarcoma in a 60 years old man. The radiologic apparence was in favor of glioblastoma and the pathologic examination concluded a gliosarcoma. The evolution was marked by the death of the patient.
