A case of neurinoma of the cauda equina which showed spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage was reported.

A 39-year-old man was admitted to our hospital be-cause of left lumhoischalgie, on August 7, 1987. Myelography disclosed a round mass at L2, and cere-brospinal fluid was slightly xanthochromic. MRI de-monstrated a round isointensity mass by T1 weighted image, and slightly high intensity by T2 weighted image.

On August 26, 1987, the patient developed sudden onset of headache, but his headache disappeared under medication.

On August 27, 1987, laminectomy L1-3 and total re-moval of the tumor were carried out.
