To date, this is the first reported case of the surgical management of a holocord epidural abscess (extending 20 vertebral levels) through level-skipping laminectomies.
This case illustrates the efficacy of skip laminectomies via an alternating side unilateral approach for holocord epidural abscesses.
(2) Holocord involvement typically occurs with pilocytic astrocytomas (Figure 2).
Holocord or central gray matter lesions were significantly associated with seropositivity (P < 0.001).
Astrocytomas affecting the entire cord from the cervicomedullary junction to the conus have been reported in children, leading to the term "holocord astrocytoma." (3) Cyst formation extending over several vertebral segments is common, with associated enhancement of the interspersed solid components (Figure 1).
