A 55-year-old man with von Hippel-Lindau disease presented with quadriparesis. Multiple enhancing cervical and thoracic spinal masses were seen on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A rim of diffuse, nodular enhancement linking all of the discrete masses was apparent on the surface of the cervical and thoracic regions of the cord. Surgical exploration revealed multiple extramedullary-intradural and intramedullary masses, extending to and infiltrating the cord; the leptomeninges contained… CONTINUE READING
