Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of multimodality treatment of glioblastoma multiforme in the elderly. Although several studies report a poor outcome in elderly patients with glioblastoma, in the light of our experience, treatment of elderly patients with glioblastoma in non-critical areas and Kamofsky Performance Status > 60 should be just as aggressive as in younger patients.
