ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Cervical Cord hemangioblastoma

History: 43 y/o man evacuated from Africa with 1 month history of symptoms – electric shock down the spine into the limbs with neck movement.

Findings: Focal, well-defined enhancing lesion in the posterior aspect of the cord at C2-C3, which replaces rather than displaces cord tissue. Increased T2 signal within and thickening of the spinal cord from C1 to C5, consistent with surrounding edema. No involvement of adjacent bone or dura.

Ddx: • AVM • Cavernous malformation • Ependymoma • Astrocytoma • Hemangioblastoma • Metastatic vascular tumor (in particular RCC) • extramedullary/intradural tumor.

Dxhow: Pathological tissue examination.

Exam: Lhermitte’s sign (Barber chair phenomenon – electric shock down the spine into the limbs with neck flex/ext)

No MeSH data available.


An area of increased T2 signal within the cervical spinal cord from the level of C1 to C5, tapering at each end, with thickening of the spinal cord in this region.
