The authors report six cases of malignant extradural spinal tumors in childhood (3 sarcomas, 2 neuroblastomas and one metastasis). They emphasize the different frequency of these tumors in infants and in adults, the clinical diversity between the primitive and metastatic tumors and the necessity of an early surgical treatment followed by the radiotherapy in the primitive tumors, because of the possibility of long survival.
