Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of spinal epidural meningioma in a 14-year-old girl is presented. Myelographic and computed tomographic findings led to the preoperative diagnosis of a metastatic lesion. Histological examination revealed the tumor to be a meningioma. Total resection was accomplished and the patient made a very good neurological recovery. A review of the literature reveals that these tumors have rarely been reported, especially in childhood.
