Resumen

TORREALBA M, Gonzalo et al. Spinal cord metastases: Report of two cases. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.12, pp.1445-1448. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872001001200011.

Spinal cord metastases are an uncommon secondary location of a malignant neoplasm. They are rarely diagnosed during life and when that is the case, it is in the clinical setting of a disseminated cancer and very seldom as the first clinical manifestation. We report two patients, with no previous disease, who developed a progressive myelopathy. An intramedullary spinal cord tumor was diagnosed, based on the clinical picture and imaging studies. They were operated and biopsies showed spinal cord metastases whose primary tumor was a lung neoplasm. We discuss the clinical features in these patients, the diagnosis of progressive myelopathy in cancer patients, treatment and prognosis of this unusual secondary cancer location (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1445-8)

Palabras clave : Lung neoplasms; Neoplasms, metastasis; Spinal cord neoplasms.
