Abstract
Subcutaneous sacrococcygeal myxopapillary ependymoma is extremely
rare tumor that has a tendency to develop in children and
adolescents. There have been several case reports and sporadic reports
in the literature. However, no case has been reported in an
Asian patient, to the best of our knowledge. We describe a 25-yearold
Asian female patient with a subcutaneous sacrococcygeal
myxopapillary ependymoma that had been clinically diagnosed as
a pilonidal cyst. The tumor was treated successfully by surgical excision
and the patient is doing well without evidence of local recurrence
or distant metastasis at 2 years after surgery.
