The article presents a case study of a four-year-old female patient who was presented with a subcutaneous sacrococcygeal mass and was admitted for neurosurgical evaluation. Pathologic microscopic evaluation showed a majority component of both myxopapillary ependymoma and ependymoblastoma. She underwent surgical resection and chemoradiation followed by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after 16 months.

    Sacrococcygeal yolk sac tumor (YST) is an extremely rare malignant extra-gonadal germ-cell tumor, which usually succeeds to the degeneration of more common benign teratoma. We describe here an unprecedented case of conus medullaris compression by a spinal metastasis from a pure sacrococcygeal...

    We report a case of a rare congenital teratoma that developed in a lipoma attached to a remnant human tail. A male newborn baby presented with a large, 3-cm mass with an open margin, which pedunculated from a tail attached to the midline skin of the coccygeal area. Magnetic resonance images...

    Glomus coccygeum is a network of glomus bodies located around pericoccygeal soft tissue. The question of whether it accounts for coccydynia has been debated. We report on a patient whose preoperative symptoms suggested the impression of glomus tumor of the coccyx; pain was relieved after removal...
