BACKGROUND Intramedullary spinal cord tumors (IMSCTs) are rare, heterogenous lesions that are usually enhanced on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) because of a damaged blood-brain barrier. Sodium fluorescein is a dye that accumulates in areas of the central nervous system with a damaged BBB. Given the pattern of MRI contrast enhancement of the majority of IMSCTs, the use of this fluorescent tracer could improve tumor visualization and quality of resection. In this article, we… Expand
