Cystic lymphangiomas of the cauda equina.
Spine J. 2004 May-Jun; 4(3):357-9.SJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND CONTEXT

Lymphangiomas, benign hamartomatous lesions of the lymph tissue, result from a failure of lymph channels to communicate with the venous system or normal lymph channels. Previously, two reports described lymphangiomas arising in the peripheral nerve (ulnar nerve and posterior tibial nerve).

PURPOSE

To report a rare case of cystic lymphangiomas of the cauda equina not previously reported.

STUDY DESIGN

Case report.

PATIENT SAMPLE

A 56-year-old Japanese man.

METHODS

Not applicable.

RESULT

The patient recovered from most of his symptoms after tumor extirpation. He had no symptoms at a 5.8-year follow-up.

CONCLUSIONS

We believe this is the first case report of lymphangiomas originating from the cauda equina, which was effectively treated by surgery.
