Abstract Share this page

A 36-year-old female patient presented with shoulder pain experienced over a period of one year and progressive weakness in both legs for one month. A magnetic resonance imaging scan revealed an intradural extramedullary (IDEM) fusiform mass about 9.8 cm in length, heterogeneously enhanced at the level of C6-T4 with spinal cord compression. At the time of surgery, the surgeon found an encapsulated IDEM tumor with spinal root attachment. The tumor was completely resected and the histologic diagnosis revealed ependymoma. The patient showed a favorable outcome with no recurrence at the 6-month follow-up. This paper reports a rare case of intradural extramedullary ependymoma with spinal root attachment.
