Case description

Lumps inside the spinal cord are very unusual. Surgical treatment of that kind of tumor is considered extremely difficult, without the possibility for any error. A 30 year old man was suffering from weakness in his legs. In the movie we can see an excision of the          intramedullary tumor. There was 't any compication after the sugery and after the intervention the patient was able to walk on his own.
