Bilateral papilloedema associated with lumbo-sacral intraspinal tumor.
Chin Med J (Engl). 2000 Mar; 113(3):201-5.CM

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To study the possible mechanism of bilateral papilloedema associated with intraspinal tumor at the lumbo-sacral level.

METHODS

Three cases were reported. Detailed clinical history was evaluated. Patients were followed up for 2, 3 and 5 months after resection of the tumor. Related literature was reviewed.

RESULTS

Papilloedema was soon resolved and the level of protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) decreased significantly after resection of tumor. These indicated a close relationship between papilloedema, CSF protein and intraspinal tumor.

CONCLUSION

This is the first report of papilloedema associated with a lumbo-sacral intraspinal tumor in Chinese literature. The high level of protein in CSF may be the cause of both papilloedema and increased intracranial pressure. In patients with bilateral papilloedema, if no intracranial cause could be found, lumbo-sacral intraspinal tumor should be considered.
