Secondary syringomyelia due to intramedullary spinal cord metastasis: Case report and review of literature

Academic Article


  • Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis is relatively rare. We describe a patient having intramedullary spinal cord metastasis associated with syringomyelia, confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging, in a patient who had poorly differentiated carcinoma of the lung. The patient responded to treatment with steroids and radiotherapy, with complete resolution of neurologic symptoms and syringomyelia.
