Subcutaneous sacrococcygeal myxopapillary ependymoma.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatric Oncology, Ankara Oncology Hospital, Turkey.


We report an 8-year-old boy with a primary subcutaneous sacrococcygeal ependymoma, a rare tumor that is thought to arise in embryologic rests. The lesion was completely removed in our patient, who has been followed without recurrence for 20 months. Our experience, together with that of the other 15 cases in the world literature, supports surgical excision as the mainstay of treatment.
