Primary spinal epidural cavernous hemangioma has been rarely reported in the literature. The authors report a case of spinal epidural cavernous hemangioma on C7-T3 in a 46-year-old man suffered from sensoirmotor impairment and gait disturbance. Based on the imaging characteristics and review of literatures, the roles of preoperative neuroradiological diagnosis and the need for complete surgical resection are discussed.
Key Words: Cavernous hemangioma; Spinal epidural space; Neuroimaging
