Background: Localization of intramedullary spine tumors can be difficult. Various intraoperative aids have previously been described, but have limited use due to expense, complexity, and time. Intravenous fluorescein is an inexpensive and safe drug that may be useful in the localization of such tumors. We describe a technical description of the intra-operative use of fluorescein as an aid in the localization of a intramedullary spine tumour. Methods: In this technical report, the authors present a case example of a 56 year old man presenting with a intramedullary tumor at the level of C5/6. Intra-operatively intravenous Fluorescein was administered and the Pentero microscope BLUE™ 400 feature was used to accurately identify the lesion. Multiple biopsies of the fluorescent tissue were taken. Results: After 10 cardiac cycles the fluorescent coloring was isolated to what was thought to be the intramedullary lesion. Our myelotomy was made based on the uptake of this fluorescent coloring and multiple biopsies were taken. Final pathology confirmed this tissue was consistent with a high grade glioma. Conclusions: The use of intravenous fluorescein was a valuable aid in localizing the lesion and minimizing the size of our myelotomy. The use of intravenous fluorescein to localize high grade intramedullary spinal cord tumours appears to be safe, accurate, and inexpensive.
