Abstract

A 58-year-old man presented with an extremely rare case of “pure type” spinal tanycytic ependymoma associated with hematomyelia manifesting as sensory disturbance of the bilateral hands and weakness of the right arm. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a tumor in the spinal cord from C-2 to C-4 levels. The soft gelatinous tumor was subtotally resected and the adjacent chronic liquid hematoma was aspirated. The immunohistochemical and ultrastructural findings indicated a diagnosis of tanycytic ependymoma.
