ABSTRACT
A rare case of cervical subependymoma in a 45-year-old man is described. The tumor appeared as an extramedullary mass lesion, but a discrete, less well-demarcated portion was observed in the anterolateral part of the cord at the C3-C7 level. Previous reports of spinal subepnedymomas are reviewed, and nosological possibilities of extramedullary presentation are discussed.
Key Words: Extramedullary tumor; Spinal cord; Spinal tumor; Subependymoma
