Ependymomas are neuroectodermal tumours arising from ependymal cells of the ventricular system, choroid plexus, filum terminale, or central canal of the spinal cord. We report on a 160-mm-long cervicothoracic intramedullary spinal cord ependymoma. The tumour was totally removed; no radiotherapy was used as an adjunctive therapy. Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging confirmed that the tumour had been totally removed.
