ABSTRACT
Intramedullary epidermoid tumors are rare. To our knowledge, this is the first description of a multiple intraspinal epidermoid tumor, including the intramedullary conus medullaris and an intradural lesion in the lumbar spine. The authors report the case of a 43-year-old woman presenting with progressive paraparesis. A thoraco-lumbar lesion was confirmed as an epidermoid cyst from histopathology. The clinical, radiological and surgical features, as well as a brief critical review of the literature are included.
Key Words: Multiple epidermoid cysts; Intramedullary tumor
