Objective: Intramedullary spinal gliomas (IMSGs) are a rare pathology. They account for 20-25% of all intramedullary spinal cord tumors (ICSTs), which is only 6-8% of all intraspinal neoplasms and less than 0.8% of all CNS tumors. Gross total removal of IMSGs carries a high risk of surgical[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
