The success of the medical act depends on a team approach to the patient. The multidisciplinary approach has a key role in diagnosing and treating the disease, in decreasing mortality and morbidity, increasing the patients quality of life. We present the case of a 58-year-old right-handed female patient known to have stage IIIB operated, chemo- and radio treated left breast neoplasm and operated left fronto-parietal brain tumor (adenocarcinoma metastasis). Approximately 4 months after the intervention, the patient presents an epileptic seizure, predominantly motor dysphasia and slight right brachial paresis. Brain computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan leftfronto-parietal tumor recurrence. Neurosurgical intervention is decided and subtotal ablation of the tumour formation is performed. The patient has a favourable evolution without over-added neurological deficits. A team of neurologist, neurosurgeon, radiologist, pathologist, radiotherapist, oncologist, anaesthesiologist was involved in this evolution. The team approach to the patient is the key to success, with the patient needing the opinion of each individual doctor.
