Abstract

Dorsolumbar intradural extramedullary ependymoma is a rare entity. Spinal metastases in patients with intracranial ependymoma are well described, but it is extremely rare for a spinal ependymoma to metastasize to brain. We describe a case of aggressive dorsolumbar intradural extramedullary ependymoma mimicking arachnoid cyst radiologically, which developed intracranial metastasis.
