Abstract

Incidence Review of the Literature Relation of Tumors of the Spinal Cord in Children to Membranes of the Spinal Cord Age, Duration of Symptoms, Level and Pathologic Diagnosis Presenting Symptoms Sensory Changes and Paraesthesias Bladder and Rectal Disturbances Effects of Lumbar Puncture Examination of the Spinal Fluid Level and Position of Tumor Preoperative and Postoperative Diagnosis and Operative Results—Mortality Conclusions Among 165 verified tumors of the spinal cord for which operation was performed at the Neurological Institute, between 1910 and 1926 inclusive, 8 were found in children 12 years of age or under. Two of the eight children were operated on before 1922, and the remaining six after that date. It is probable that the greater number of cases found in later years is due to the progress made in the recognition of tumors of the spinal cord by the neurologic signs and the information gained by such special tests
