ABSTRACT
A case of multiple intradural schwannomas of the cauda equina is reported without evidence of any other manifestations of neurofibromtosis. The patient had symptoms of cauda equina compression. Following a diagnosis of multiple intradural tumors of the cauda equina, based on lumbar spine MRI with contrast enhancement, the tumors at the L1 body, L3 body, L3-L4 intervertebral space level were removed completely, involving two rootlets. After the operation, the patient is asymptomatic apart from left S3 dermatome hypesthesia.
Key Words: Multiple intradural schwannoms; Neurofibromatosis; Cauda equina compression
