Subependymomas of the cervical spinal cord are relatively rare tumors. Thirteen cases have been reported in the literature with the longest reported follow-up and survival being six years. This paper describes a woman who survived for 14 years in reasonably good health after her diagnosis of cervical spinal cord intramedullary subependymoma. A review of reported cases and a discussion of subependymomas and their characteristics is included.
