The correct answer is option A - Glioblastoma Glioblastoma is the condition that can be visualized in a CT study of the brain. Glioblastoma multiforme is a fast growing brain tumor that affects glial cells – astrocytes and oligodendrocytes in the brain. The mean survival with glioblastoma is about a year is the tumor is highly malignant and it spreads rapidly into brain tissues.

Krukenberg tumor is a tumor of the ovary that arises as a result of metastasis from a primary site most common from gastric adenocarcinoma. This cannot be seen on CT study in the brain. Plasmacytosis is when there ia a large portion of plasma cells in tissues or in the blood. Wilms tumor is a common kidney cancer that is common in childhood.
