Small cell glioblastoma (SCGBM) is a rare variant with monomorphous cells and deceptively bland nuclei
and are often misdiagnosed. Here, we present a case of small cell GBM in a 39-year-old male involving
bilateral basal ganglia diagnosed as primary central nervous system lymphoma on MRI. After excision,
the tumor showed features of small cell glioblastoma. Clinical features, morphological characteristics and
immunohistochemical features of this rare lesion is hence discussed.

Keywords: Small cell glioblastoma, Basal ganglia.
