TCavernous angiomas represent 5 to 12% of spinal vascular malformations and usually are located at the vertebral body level with possible extension into the extradural space. The intradural intramedullary cavernous angioma occurs in about 3% of cases, whereas extramedullary localization is extremely rare. We report a case of intradural extramedullary cavernous angioma in which the patient presented with low back pain and both leg pain. The magnetic resonance imaging study showed intraspinal mass lesion at L1-2. It was removed totally through laminectomy of L1-2 and confirmed as cavernous angioma. The postoperative course was uneventful without any neurologic deficit. We report this unusual spinal malformation.
Key Words: Cavernous angioma; Intradural-extramedullary
