Abstract

Spinal tumors are not classified according to the cell type they originate from, as was the case with intracranial tumors, but according to anatomical site, in particular in relation to the dura mater and to the SC. Hence, they may be extradural, intradural extramedullar, and intramedullar (Table I). Dysembryogenic tumors will be covered separately.
