ABSTRACT
A case of thoracolumbar intrameduallary neurilemmoma diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging and treated surgically is presented. Published reports of these rare lesions and possible mechanisms of their origin are reviewed. Magnetic resonance imaging is better than myelography and computed tomography at delineating the intramedullary extent of the tumor. We belive that complete resection is the treatment of choice.
Key Words: Intramedullary neurilemmoma; Magnetic resonance imaging; Complete resection
