Spinal Cord Lesions

Part of the Frozen Section Library book series (FROZEN, volume 6)


There are a whole host of lesions that may involve the spinal cord and be the target of a biopsy. These lesions are summarized in Table 11.1 according to their location within the spinal cord parenchyma itself (intramedullary), between the spinal cord and dura (intradural, extramedullary), and arising outside the dura (extradural). Most of these lesions have been addressed elsewhere in this book in previous chapters.
