Intraosseous neurilemmoma of the cervical spine causing paraparesis and treated by resection and grafting.

By C E Polkey

Abstract

A neurilemmoma presented as an expanding lesion of the bodies of C6 and C7 vertebrae and caused local neurological signs together with a spastic paraparesis. This tumour was treated by preliminary posterior fusion, followed by its complete removal via an anterior approach and stabilization by anterior spinal fusion. Other cases in the literature are reviewed and discussed
