  • Abstract The case reported herein is unusual because of the very long period during which symptoms of spinal cord disease developed. It has been known for many years that tumors in the cervical region may reach a large size and yet not cause any alteration in spinal manometrics or in the spinal fluid protein. The wisdom of performing myelography in patients presumed to have degenerative spinal cord disease without evidence of dissemination is reaffirmed.
