Last revised by Owen Kang on 26 Apr 2020

Useful mnemonics to remember the differential diagnoses for intradural extramedullary spinal neoplasms include the following:

  • No More Spinal Masses
  • MNM


No More Spinal Masses

This simplified mnemonic, as in M&M candy, places the primary neoplasms in order of frequency, followed by secondary neoplasms.
