- Spinal tumors are often categorized into extradural, intradural extramedullary, or intramedullary. Although this classification represents somewhat of an overgeneralization as a lesion may reside in two compartments, it still helps to characterize spinal tumors. In the intradural, extramedullary space, primary tumors, such as neurofibroma and meningioma, are relatively common. Secondary tumors or leptomeningeal enhancement also occur. In the intramedullary space, primary tumors are far more common than secondary tumors or metastases.
