A brain stem glioblastoma is a primary brain tumor involving glial cells. It is aggressive, malignant, and starts in the brain or spinal cord and often spreads throughout the nervous system. The tumors arise from astrocytes, or cells that exist in the supportive tissue of the brain. The exact cause of this tumor is not known, but an important gene associated with a brain glioblastoma is the TNSF13 gene. The large amount of blood flow that continuously goes throughout the brain facilitates the rapid growth of this tumor. There are primary and secondary forms of brain stem glioblastoma, with the primary following a very rapid progression and the secondary beginning as lower grade tumors and eventually becoming higher grade. The most common symptoms occur due to an increased pressure on the brain stem, and include headaches, nausea, double vision, and seizures. The standard treatment is surgery to remove the tumor, but the aggressive nature of the glioblastoma frequently makes that impossible.
