The authors report a case of cerebral metastasis from a spinal cord astrocytoma. The first metastatic tumor was controlled by radiation therapy. A second metastatic brain tumor was detected 2 years later, but attempts to control it through subtotal removal and chemotherapy failed. Metastasis from a spinal cord tumor to the brain is a rare event.
