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.
