While the management protocol for de novo glioblastoma is well established, the role of surgery in recurrent high-grade glioma (HGG) is not yet clear. In the light of recent developments in radio and chemotherapy modalities, it has become essential to recognize true disease progression from its mimics. This article discusses the recent literature on the challenges in identifying recurrence in HGG, modalities to diagnose, indications for surgery, and the outcomes in contemporary studies. The factors identified in prognostication have been discussed.
