In children, tumours of the spine are much rarer than intracranial tumours. They are classified into intramedullary, intradural and extradural tumours.1Magnetic resonance imaging provides crucial information regarding the extent, location and internal structure of the mass thus critically narrowing the differential diagnosis. Our department reports a case of a 16 year old female who presented with history of proximal muscle weakness and MR features of the above disease. We discuss the typical MR features of myxopapillary ependymoma and determine the role of MR imaging in identifying the tumour, establishing its extent and defining its relationship with adjacent intraspinal structures.
