Abstract

We report a case of isolated myxopapillary ependymoma (MPE) of the fourth ventricle. This is the thirteenth reported case of primary intracranial MPE and the fourth reported case of MPE originating from the fourth ventricle. We suggest that exhaustive clinical and radiological investigation of a spinal ependymoma must be undertaken in all cases of intracranial ependymoma.
