Spinal intradural extramedullary cavernous hemangioma
Spinal intradural extramedullary cavernous hemangiomas are very rare. Mixed intensities on T1- andT2-weighted images due to repeated hemorrhages and poor to absent contrast-enhancement are the most common imaging features of the disease allowing accurate differentiation from the far more frequent meningiomas and schwannomas of similar location.
