Abstract

A 58-YEAR-OLD WOMAN presents with headache, mental status changes, and new-onset generalized seizures. MRI of the brain reveals a frontoparietal enhancing mass lesion suggestive of glioblastoma multiforme. Craniotomy for diagnosis, debulking, and likely placement of chemotherapy-impregnated wafers is planned. Venous thromboprophylaxis is prescribed.
