TUNON-PITALUA, M.C. et al. Intra-spinal clear cell meningioma: Case report and literature review. Neurocirugía [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.1, pp.50-55. ISSN 1130-1473.

Clear cell meningioma is a rare variety of meningiomas, occurring frequently at the cerebellopontine angle and spinal canal. A case of a female patient 28 years of age with a complete cauda equina syndrome was described. Magnetic resonance imaging of lumbo-sacral spine revealed a mass lesion occupying the spinal canal from L3 to S1. Subtotal resection was performed and pathological examination revealed a clear cell meningioma. Radiotherapy was indicated, however, it was delayed because we discovered that the patient was pregnant. The recurrence was clinically evident at seven months and a new surgical resection previous complementary radiotherapy was necessary. A systematic review of literature was performed, exposing the behavior of clear cell meningioma in the spinal canal.
