Renier M., Capitanio G., Ardit S., Leoni G., Marconato R., Ramuscello S., Tremolada C.
Ependymoma is glial tumor usually located in the brain and spinal cord but on rare occasions it may be found outside the CNS. In this case, contrary to the intrameningeous forms, it can produce distant metastases through lympho-hematic pathway. In this paper we report a case of myxopapillary ependymoma accidentally observed after excison of a suppurated sacrococcygeal pilonidal cyst in a young woman. A review of the literature is presented and the clinical, diagnostic, pathologic and therapeutic features are discussed.
