The intensive utilisation of cranial irradiation in young individuals with benign intracranial pathologies are of particular concern because of the potential for delayed development of radiation-induced neoplasms. We present a 48-year-old man who developed a second metachronous brainstem glioblastoma 10 years following adjuvant radiotherapy for a partially resected glomus jugulare tumour. The current patient highlights the importance of judicious and individualised consideration for irradiation treatment in benign pathologies that are associated with long-term survival.
