Abstract In 1959, a 30-year-old man underwent the removal of a glioblastoma multiforme from the right parietal lobe of his brain. After the operation, he received x-ray therapy. He made a complete recovery. Today, over 25 years later, he is alive and well and is regularly employed full-time. If glioblastomas and other cerebral gliomas are removed completely, the patients can be cured of their tumors.
