Paraganglioma of the cauda equina: case report and review of the MRI features.

Abstract

We report a case of paraganglioma of the cauda equina and review the MRI features in 11 previously published cases with MRI description. On T1-weighted images, paraganglioma is isointense relative to spinal cord and shows moderate to intense enhancement after Gd-DTPA application, usually with heterogeneous texture. On T2-weighted images, different findings were found. MRI features do not allow to distinguish paraganglioma of the cauda equina from majority of other tumors in this region.
