The occurrence of herniated disc simulating diseases in neuroimaging it’s an uncommon situation. However, due to changes that occur in sequestered disc fragment, some cases can mimic spinal neoplasms. Thus, we present the case of a female patient, 60 year-old, with left back pain and left leg weakness. Left lower limb presented with strength grade IV,(More)
