Cartilage-containing meningiomas are extremely uncommon, and such tumors located in the spinal cord of a child have not previously been reported. We describe a case of cartilaginous spinal meningioma in a 13-year-old girl. The tumor lacked typical histopathological features of meningioma on light microscopic examination, and the final diagnosis was possible only after an extensive study by electron microscopic examination. The case is evaluated with a focus on differential diagnosis and review of the literature.
