Extra-axial ependymomas are very rare but have been reported in the ovary, broad ligament, sacrococcygeal region, lung, and mediastinum. The histogenesis is obscure, and a thorough immunohistochemical analysis is lacking. We reviewed the morphologic and immunohistochemical features of 5 extra-axial ependymomas occurring in adults, 1 arising in an infantile sacrococcygeal teratoma, and a control group of 10 central nervous system (CNS) ependymomas in adults. All cases were evaluated for… CONTINUE READING
