ABSTRACT
The authors present a rare case of clear cell ependymoma that developed in the cauda equina. A 54-year-old man was admitted to hospital with intermittent lower back pain. A neurological examination conducted on admission revealed no sensory or motor disturbance. Deep tendon reflexes in both lower extremities were normal. Magnetic resonance images demonstrated a 1.0 cm-sized intradural mass at the filum terminale. Gross total resection was performed via total laminectomy of L1 and L2. The tumor was confirmed to be clear cell ependymoma by histopathologic examination. His symptom was relieved after surgery.
Key Words: Clear cell ependymoma; Cauda equina
