Abstract

We report the case of a 65-year-old woman who developed symptoms of spinal cord compression due to a spinal meningioma after 10 years of treatment with hydroxyurea (1000 mg/day) for essential thrombocytemia. This case provides a paradigm for the occurrence of symptomatic meningioma in course of HU therapy.
