Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour (ATRT) is a rare and highly aggressive malignant neoplasm of the central nervous system (CNS), which occurs predominantly in children less than 2 years of age. There are less than 50 cases described in adult. We report a case of primary spinal ATRT in a 65-year-old male who presented to us with cauda equina syndrome. To the best of our knowledge, our patient is the (1) second oldest patient to be diagnosed with ATRT and only the third case of adult spinal ATRT report in the literature; (2) first reported case of CNS ATRT occurring in a patient with non-rhabdoid renal cancer; (3) first adult patient of ATRT to present with cauda equina syndrome.
