A 68-year-old man was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme of the right basal ganglia in March 2010. He was treated with radiotherapy and concurrent chemotherapy with daily temozolomide for over 6 weeks. During the maintenance phase of treatment with temozolomide, he developed a swelling in the left cheek; a biopsy of which proved to be non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The temozolomide was stopped and the lymphoma was successfully treated with chemotherapy.
