Primary spinal pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma|
Gill, Maneet; Pathak, H. C.; Madan, Renu; Bhattacharya, S. & Choudhary, G. S.
Pleomorphic xanthochromic astrocytoma primarily of the spinal cord is a rare entity. The case is possibly the fifth such report. Complete surgical excision is the essential requirement for good survival. In the absence of any clearly laid down protocols of adjuvant treatment, anecdotal reports support treatment with chemotherapy alone or both chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
