The World Health Organization described gliosarcoma (GS) as a rare variant of glioblastoma multiforme. It is a biphasic neoplasm consisting of both gliomatous and sarcomatous elements. It was first described by Stroebe in 1895. Its peak incidence is in fourth to sixth decade of life with increased male to female ratio. We are presenting a case report of a 48-year-old male patient who presented to the hospital with signs and symptoms of headache, vomiting, and weakness in both upper and lower limbs. Computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass lesion in the left posterior parietal lobe. The tumor was excised, and histopathology examination confirmed the diagnosis of GS.
