World Neurosurg 2016 Aug 6;92:140-141. Epub 2016 May 6.

Department of Radiology, Section of Neuroradiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, USA.

We present the unusual appearance on brain magnetic resonance imaging of a glioblastoma with an uncanny shape of a rabbit. By invoking fearsome "killer" rabbits depicted in the art and literature of the Middle Ages, this image is an eerie reminder of the current lethality of this disease. There is a pressing need for more effective treatments for glioblastoma.
