Abstract Text Epithelioid glioblastoma (E-GBM) is a recently described variant of glioblastoma (GBM) which is associated with short survival and now added as a provisional entity to WHO 2016 classification of central nervous system tumors. About half of these tumors show the BRAF mutant. Therefore, this is a target of special interest for this group of patients. Meanwhile, unlike conventional glioblastoma, E-GBM lacks specific prognostic markers. We described a case of a long-term surviving 37-years-old men patient diagnosed with a BRAF V600E and TERT mutated E-GBM with wild-type in the isocitrate dehydrogenase gene (IDH wild-type). The tumor displayed atypical exophytic growth, an obvious proliferation of vascular endothelial cells, especially tumor tissue can be seen under subarachnoid space. Notably, tumor tissue was found under subarachnoid space. After postoperative conventional treatment options were exhausted, vemurafenib treatment was initiated. The patient remained clinically stable, and follow-up magnetic resonance images were consistent with stable disease for the following fifteen months up to now. Whole-exome sequencing analysis and RNA-seq results of formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue revealed nine mutant genes (AHNAK2, BFSP1, BRAF, CNTNAP3, DNHD1, MTOR, NFATC3, NOM1). For E-GBM patients, the use of BRAF inhibitors combined with inhibitors of these seven genes may be a useful remedial treatment option.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
