[Intracranial hypertension and hydrocephalus caused by spinal cord tumors. Apropos of 3 cases].
Neurochirurgie. 1987; 33(3):216-9.N

Abstract

Three cases of spinal cord tumor, revealed by hydrocephalus, are reported. Two patients showed symptoms of increased intracranial pressure and the third one presented himself with ataxic gait without intellectual impairment nor incontinence. In two cases ventriculo atrial shunt was initially inserted and the correct diagnosis was made only later on myelogram because lombosciatalgia or syndrome of the cauda equina. Clinical outcome was satisfying after surgical removal of the tumor. The nature of which was a neurinoma of the cauda equina; a lumbar intradural granuloma and an ependymoma of the cauda equina. The mechanism by which spinal cord tumors raised intracranial hypertension is discussed.
