Rhabdoid type intramedullary meningioma. A case report and review of the literature.Neurocirugia (Astur : Engl Ed). 2019 Jul - Aug; 30(4):202-205.N
Meningiomas are the most frequent tumors located at the spinal level together with neurinomas and metastases. These tumors tend to be intradural and extramedullar. There are few cases described in the literature with a purely intramedullary location (less than 10 cases) and they are frequently observed in the union craneal-cervical. In the presence of an intramedullary tumor we perform differential diagnoses with ependymomas, astrocytomas... In this article we present the first case described in the literature of a patient with a rabdoid-type meningioma exclusively intramedullary at the level of the medullary cone.
