Therapeutic management of gliosarcoma in the stupp protocol and temozolomide era

   Gliosarcoma (GSM) is a rare malignant brain tumor which ac- counts for 1-8% of all malignant glioma [4]. GSM is a type of glioma grade IV with a biphasic tissue pattern, alternating ar- eas displaying glial and mesenchymal differentiation Even if GSM and glioblastoma (GBM) share some common features, they are different histological entities and should be con- sidered separately also from a therapeutical and prognostic point of view.
