A CASE OF PRIMARY INTRAMEDULLARY TUMOR

 ABSTRACT

Primary spinal cord tumors are rare neoplasms that can lead to significant patient disability and mortality. Given their rarity, they are often misdiagnosed, especially in the early stages, when a high index of suspicion is required. In rare cases of spinal cord tumors there may be a discrepancy between the sensory level and the real site of the tumor. This phenomenon, called “false localizing sign” is rare but well known and, if unrecognized, may delay the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. The aim of this work is to present a clinical case with a false localizing low thoracic sensory level due to an upper thoracic grade II ependymoma.

Keywords: spinal cord ependymoma, false localizing level of sensibility
