Spinal paraganglioma presenting as normal pressure hydrocephalus: a rare occurrence.
Br J Neurosurg. 2019 Jul 18 [Online ahead of print]BJ

Abstract

Objective:

We report a 63 years old female who presented with confusion, urinary retention and gait disturbances. Method: CT head shows communicating hydrocephalus. Spinal MRI demonstrated an L5- S1 intradural lesion. Result: Histopathology proved it to be paraganglioma. Postoperative CT head showed reduction in size of ventricles. Association between spinal tumors and hydrocephalus is known but occurs infrequently.

Conclusion:

The presence of an intraspinal tumor must be kept in mind as a possible cause of the hydrocephalus.
