Abstract

Since Verbiest first described the symptoms and findings of spinal stenosis, much has been published on the etiology, symptoms, and treatment of the syndrome. Occasionally intradural tumors can present with many of the same symptoms and signs as those of degenerative spine lesions. The most common intradural lesion is the intradural extramedullary neurofibroma. We are presenting two patients with spinal stenosis and concomitant spinal tumors. Classically, spinal fluid analysis and myelography were used to make the diagnosis preoperatively. The use of newer noninvasive diagnostic methods that can be used to detect and localize these lesions is discussed.
