AbstractFour children with spinal cord compression due to malignant tumours are presented. The severity of the condition was not initially recognized by parents, or the nature of the likely cause by the initial physicians. Lower limb asymmetrical weakness, clear-cut sensory levels, and marked pain indicate need for urgent imaging and exclusion of a space occupying lesion. In 1997 diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome should not be made without careful prior spinal imaging.
