Arch Anat Cytol Pathol. 1995;43(3):157-9.


A case of myxopapillary ependymoma presenting as a primary tumor of the subcutaneous tissue of the sacrococcygeal area is reported. The tumor usually presents as an asymptomatic mass at the base of the spine in young individuals and may therefore be mistaken for a pilonidal cyst. The clinical and pathological features of this tumor are discussed.
