Abstract
Primary neuroblastoma in the central nervous system(CNS) is
unusual tumor in adult, and primary intramedullary neuroblastoma is extremely rare.
The authors report a case of 36-year-old woman presenting with pain in the right
anterior chest wall and weakness of the right lower extremity. An upper thoracic
intraspinal mass was revealed on magnetic resonance image. On operation, the
demarcation plane of the tumor was good and enabled a total removal of the
subpially located intramedullary mass. Histopathological examination revealed
neuroblastoma. After surgery with whole spinal irradiation, the patient was followed
up for one year. There was no evidence of local recurrence radiologically and
clinically. However fifteen months after the surgery, multiple metastases to the
breast, lung, Iioer and brain occurred.
