Abstract
Introduction: Radiation therapy is an established cause of secondary neoplasia in the central nervous system. Few reports of glioblastoma multiforme following radiation therapy have been documented.
Case Report: We herein report a rare case of glioblastoma multiforme in a remitted acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patient who have received craniospinal irradiation and stayed free of complications for a five-year follow-up.
Conclusion: Implementation of leukemia protocols with minimal central nervous system (CNS) irradiation role may minimize the late complications and even the development of secondary CNS tumors.

Keywords: Central nervous system (CNS), Glioblastoma multiforme, Leukemia, Radiotherapy, Tumors
