Figure 7: Case 7 (A–E) MRI images of a 15-year-old boy showing a large tumor involving the D8 and D9 vertebrae with a pathological fracture of D9. The tumor has extended into the epidural space resulting in severe (grade 3) epidural spinal cord compression. There is a large intrathoracic extension of the tumor within the left hemithorax. Contrast images reveal that the tumor is hypervascular. (F–H) MRI images after six cycles of chemotherapy revealing significant reduction in the size of the intrathoracic component of the tumor and the epidural spinal cord compression. The pathological fracture of the vertebra too appears to have healed
