Primary intramedullary anaplastic oligodendroglioma is a rare tumor. We described a 27-year old male with primary intramedullary anaplastic oligodendroglioma. He underwent partial removal of tumor and spinal radiation therapy. The objectives were to present a case of intramedullary anaplastic oligodendroglioma and review the existing literature. A comparison of the clinical, radiologic and pathologic characteristics, as they relate to those already described in similar cases, was also attempted.
