Paraganglioma of cauda equina. A report of a case and review of the literature.
Cancer. 1983 May 15; 51(10):1907-10.C

Abstract

A case of a cauda equina paraganglioma in a 13-year-old boy is described. A review of literature revealed six similar reported cases. All were intradural extramedullarly tumors located in the cauda equina-filum terminale region. In all, the presenting and dominant symptom was low back pain, while neurologic deficit was mild or absent. Excessive CSF protein levels appeared to be a characteristic feature of the disease. Histologically, the tumor displayed the typical "Zellballen" pattern, however mild nuclear pleomorphism and some mitotic figures were noted. As it is impossible to predict the biological behaviour of paragangliomas from the histologic appearance, complete surgical resection with close follow-up is indicated in such cases.
