AbstractWe present the case of a 30-year-old patient with pontine glioblastoma multiforme, World Health Organisation grade IV (WHO IV). This case is of particular interest in terms of the patient's use of social media as a medium of expression. This popular form of communication raises important clinical, ethical and social issues relating to confidentiality and the nature of the physician-patient relationship in a unique context.
