By Faheem Mohd, Zeeshan Qazi, Ojha Bal Krishna, Chandra Anil, Singh Sunil Kumar, Srivastava Chhitij, Sagar Mala and Saba Noor Us


Intramedullary epidermoid cysts of the spinal cord are rare tumours, especially those not associated with spinal dysraphism. Around 60 cases have been reported in the literature. Of these, only 10 cases have had magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. Here, we report a case of isolated intramedullary epidermoid tumour at D2-D3 level. The etiology, pathology, clinical features, MRI characteristics and surgical treatment of such rare intramedullary tumours are discussed
