Abstract

Myxopapillary Ependymoma was first designated by Kernohan(1932). It is characterized by its unique location at cauda equina and histologically well defined cuboidal or low columnar cells which appear to be planted firmly around a conspicuous central core of hyaline acellular connective tissue which contains small blood vessels. We recently experienced a typical case of myxopapillary ependymoma which was highly vascular and filled the entire dural sac.
