Abstract

We present a case of intramedullary spinal gangliocytoma in a 19-year-old woman who presented with a long history of hyperhidrosis of the face and neck areas and intermittent pain of the hands. The tumor involved the cervico-thoracic region of the spinal cord from C7-T3. The patient underwent debulking of the lesion and remains neurologically stable at two years follow-up. A discussion of this case is followed by a review of the literature surrounding this rare clinicopathological entity.
