Abstract

We report a patient with glioblastoma multiforme who was subsequently diagnosed to have Wilson's disease. Immunohistochemical studies of the tumor revealed high (> 60%) labeling index for p53 and Rb retinoblastoma protein. Whether this association is like the co-occurrence of retinoblastoma and Wilson's disease due to possible somatic mutation in chromosome 13 needs to be explored.
