Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of a 36-year-old woman with an extradural spinal meningioma presenting as a neck mass is documented. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy was used as an initial diagnostic procedure and provided the diagnosis. Fine-needle aspiration biopsies are an excellent, cost-effective, diagnostic approach with low morbidity. Although these are underused, we recommend their use in the management of patients with neck masses. The entity of extradural spinal meningioma is briefly discussed.
