Primary epidermoid tumors are congenital lesions of ectodermal origin. Their appearance has been described with MR and CT in the calvarium (1-7]. Primary and secondary epidermoid tumors of the spine are rare tumors , and their MR appearances have not been described. We present a case of epidermoid tumor of the spinal canal that probably was caused by a lumbar puncture performed approximately 20 years earlier. The MR appearances both before and after administration of Gd-DTPA are illustrated.
