Neoplastic diseases of the spine may be classified according to their location in the spine: extradural, intradural, or intramedullary. Their clinical presentation is usually related to their location. They may progress slowly and gradually or, at times, develop rapidly, especially in malignant and aggressive neoplasms. This chapter does not deal with all the existing tumors. Only the more common ones will be discussed.
