    Abstrakt

    In Jan. 97 a gliosarcoma was diagnosed in a 61-year-old man after a 6- month history with neurological deficits. A total physical examination, laboratory tests, chest x-ray and abdominal ultrasound scanning revealed no gross abnormalities. Surgery was followed by brain radiation therapy and 6 months later there were metastases to the oral cavity, right palpebra and both lungs. The histological findings of the oral and palpebral metastases revealed only the sarcomatous component. We are aware of 15 cases of gliosarcoma with extraneural metastases, and in 4 of these, the metastases contained only the sarcomatous component. We believe that our case represents the fifth case of pure sarcomatous metastases.
