Spinal tumors can be broadly classified on the basis of the anatomical compartment that they occupy. Regardless of location, because of the small confines of the spinal canal, significant neurologic morbidity can occur as a result of expansion of the cord, cauda equina, or both. Spinal cord neoplasms can be extradural, intradural extramedullary, or intradural. In this chapter, each tumor will be summarized in regard to its pathophysiology, clinical features, imaging, and treatment.
