Drop Metastasis Seeding the Intramedullary Conus Medullaris in a Patient with Breast Cancer and Brain Metastasis

Abstract

Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM) is rare (representing approximately 0.1–0.4% of all spinal cord neoplasms [1]), and nearly 50% of ISCMs arise from primary lung cancer.
