Twenty cases of intraspinal tumours and 21 rare cases of tumour and tumour like lesions causing compression paraplegia are presented. The C.S.F. changes, radiographic alterations and myelogrpahic findings are emphasized. It was our experience that intramedullary lesion rarely recovered and subdural and extradural lesions usually showed recovery if the lesion was benign in nature, situated posteriorly or posterolaterally and in the cervical and lumbar regions and where these had been present for a short duration.
