Pediatric spinal axis tumors.Neurosurg Clin N Am. 1992 Oct; 3(4):947-58.NC
Pediatric spinal cord tumors occur in the intramedullary or extramedullary spaces. The extramedullary tumors are further divided into those in intradural-extramedullary or extradural locations. Tumors in the intradural-extramedullary region include nerve sheath tumors, meningiomas, and "embryonal" tumors. In the extradural space are neuroblastomas, sarcomas, and other primary tumors of bone. The radiographic findings, histology, and management of each type of tumor are included in this article, which focuses on extramedullary tumors.
