Authors: Aditendraditya Singh Bhati, Aarjun Tyagi, Sudheer K. Tyagi


Granular cell tumors (GCTs) in the spine are uncommon. They are mostly located in the intradural extramedullary space and rarely, in an intramedullary (IM) location. Complete resection is the treatment of choice. Recurrences are rare in intradural-intramedullary (IDEM) GCTs. Recurrent and incompletely excised cases are subjected to adjuvant radiation therapy. We report such a recurrence in a 13-year-old girl who was re-operated and subjected to radiotherapy.
