Abstract

Intramedullary spinal cord metastases are difficult to demonstrate with conventional radiological methods. We report a case in which the preoperative diagnosis of spinal intramedullary metastases of renal clear cell carcinoma was possible only by using gadolinium enganced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We review the literature and suggest that this safe, sensitive procedure should be carried out in every case of suspected intramedullary spinal cord tumor.
