Abstract:Spinal cauda equina lymphoma (CEL) is very rare, with only about 14 cases reported in the English medical literature. Magnetic resonance image findings and the gross appearance of CEL at surgery are similar to those of non-neoplastic hypertrophic neuropathy of the cauda equina (HNCE); however, their prognosis and treatment are very different. We report a case of CEL and discuss the differences from non-neoplastic HNCE.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
