Abstract

Intramedullary tumors of the spinal cord are rare neoplasms that can be associated with severe neurological and functional handicaps. To our knowledge, we describe for the first time the case of a male patient who developed bilateral drop foot as an initial manifestation of a primary tumor in the conus medullaris of the spinal cord, probably an astrocytoma.
