  • Look Inside

A case of extramedullary spinal root hemangioblastoma is described. A 44-year-old male presented with gait disturbance. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed a round enhanced mass at the level of T8.Spinal angiography showed a vascular tumor fed by the posterior spinal artery via the left T9 intercostal artery. A laminectomy of T8-T9 was performed, and a reddish brown-colored soft tumor originating in the T9 posterior spinal nerve root was exposed. The postoperative course was uneventful.This is the first reported case of a spinal root hemangioblastoma that was not related with Von Hippel-Lindau disease.
