Round cell sarcomas involving spinal epidural space such as Hodgkin's disease, plasma cali sarcoma reticulum cell sarcoma and lymphosarcoma are well known diseases. Of those, primary lymphosarcoma arising at spinal epidural space has been reported as the very rare disease by Bucy and other authors. The clinical pictures of the disease were presented by the compression of the spinal cord or cauda equina. If the condition treated promptly and properly with surgery and radiation therapy, the outlook would be good both for recovery and life in most instances. We have experienced a case of primary lymphosarcoma involving lumbar spinal epidural space in a 13 year-old male and obtained a good result after surgery and radiation therapy.
Key Words: Primary lymphosarcoma; Epidural space; Spinal cord
