The course of clinical symptoms in cases of spinal meningioma is generally characterized by a variable period of time, pain, and later by a phase in which cord disturbances seem to stabilize. The symptoms of the irritative pain syndrome are due to direct initial compression of the mengioma on one or more nerve roots. We retrospectively studied the clinical reports of our patients from 1962 to 1994 and collected data useful in identifying anatomical-clinical features and the beginning of the syndrome.
