Abstract

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST) is a rare condition that arises from the peripheral nerves and is characterized histologically by cellular atypia, hyperchromasia and spindle shaped tumor cells intersecting in stroiform pattern. While neurofibromas are common in spinal canal, malignant transformation into MPNST is rarely seen except in cases with neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1).
