European Spine Journal, 05/30/2012Hirano K et al.
This is the first published research in English on the epidemiology of primary spinal cord tumors in Japanese people. Similar to other reports from Asian countries, the data indicates a higher male/female ratio overall for spinal cord tumors, a higher proportion of nerve sheath cell tumors, and a lower proportion of meningiomas and neuroepithelial tumors compared to reports from non–Asian countries. Data in the current study represent the characteristics of primary spinal cord tumors in Asian countries.
