Anis is a Tunisian physician, his wife is a psychiatrist. In May 2021, he presented a spatio-temporal disorientation. He no longer knows where he is and what date it is. His wife had him consulted and hospitalized in a famous Parisian hospital. A CT scan shows two brain lesions that obstruct the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. The lesions were biopsied and show glioblastoma, a very aggressive form of brain tumor. The flow of cerebrospinal fluid is diverted to avoid intracranial hypertension. The patient remains confused and although he is in Paris, he thinks he is at a beach in Tunisia. His doctor offered a combination of radiation and chemotherapy and warned his wife that her husband's days are numbered.

His wife refuses administration of any chemotherapy and radiotherapy, due to her belief that these treatments have low efficiency. Survival from glioblastoma is usually a few months. They return to Tunisia, begin treatment with lipoic acid, hydroxycitrate, chlorine dioxide and DMSO. As they are worried they double the doses of each ingredient and the patient's condition improves. Back home, he becomes oriented again, recognizes his family and his city. He gradually regains his intellectual capacities, but remains very tired.

At the blood test, we note: anemia, a decrease in white blood cells and platelets. The hair falls out. These are the same side effects, ( hair loss decreased blood count) as those induced by cancer chemotherapy. The doses are lowered to the same level than the previous two patients and the side effects wear off. Four months later, he is swimming better and driving his car. Caution is required of course, but this is not the relentless course of glioblastoma. Unfortunately, the cancer relapsed six months after diagnosis and he died of local recurrence. The reason I mention this last case is for the reader to grasp the extreme difficulty facing the patient. On one hand the dire prognosis of a disease on the other hand an unproven alternative.
