Spinale Tumoren

  • R. Reilmann

Zusammenfassung

Spinale Tumoren entstehen im Wirbelkanal aus Zellen des Rückenmarks, der Spinalwurzeln, des Filum terminale oder der Meningen, es können aber auch Metastasen sein. Die meisten klinischen Symptome werden durch Kompression des Rückenmarks und der Nervenwurzeln hervorgerufen. Diagnostische Methode der Wahl ist die MRT. Die Therapie richtet sich nach Art, Dignität und Lokalisation des Tumors sowie nach dem klinischen Bild.
