Glioblastoma – Diffuse guerilla war by Dr Paloma Jimenez Arribas


Today I was lucky to attend a very interesting presentation by Dr Paloma Jimenez Arribas, a 3rd year Neurosurgery resident at Son Espases Hospital in Palma, about Glioblastoma, a very nasty and particularly aggressive brain tumour. As it was the tumour that killed my mother I was very interested to see the presentation, which compared the strategy of the tumour with guerilla warfare, with its underhand tactics. For this metaphor Paloma drew upon an article written by Dr Pieter Wesseling, a pathologist working in the Netherlands. Thanks Paloma for letting me share your talk.
