Spinal tumors is a form of tumor that grows in the spinal cord. Extradural tumors are more common than intradural neoplasms.[1]

Forms[change | change source]

Depending on their location, the spinal cord tumors can be:

  • Extradural - outside the dura mater lining (most common)
  • Intradural - part of the dura
    • Intramedullary - inside the spinal cord
    • Extramedullary- inside the dura, but outside the spinal cord
