Abstract

 Concomitant Spinal Intradural Meningioma and Extradural Angiolipoma

Spinal meningiomas are frequent tumors and they may be associated with other tumors involving central nervous system or other systems, especially in the patients with some syndromes such as neurofibromatosis or multiple endocrine neoplasia. However, spinal angiolipomas are quite rare benign tumors, and they are generally solitary lesions. There is only one case whose spinal angiolipoma associates to another tumor, a spinal osteochondroma at same level, in the literature.
