Abstract

A 69-year-old patient with an intramedullary metastasis from colon carcinoma is presented. Total removal of the tumor brought him 3 months of useful life. Although radiation therapy is generally favored, one should consider microsurgical resection of discrete, solitary intramedullary metastases in patients with radioresistant primary tumors.
