ABSTRACT
We report a 17-year-old woman presented with a one-month history of lower back pain and radiating pain in the left leg. Examination revealed Lasegues sign in left leg with mild weakness of the plantar flexion of the left big toe. Magnetic resonance image revealed a well enhanced intradural lesion at the S1-2 level. Following a subtotal laminectomy of S1 and an intradural exposure, the roots of the cauda equina draped the tumor loosely without any attachment to the dura or cauda equina. The tumor was removed en bloc. The patient's recovery was uneventful. Histological examination confirmed a clear cell meningioma.
Key Words: Clear cell meningioma; Spinal cord neoplasm; Cauda equina
