Abstract

A 26-year-old man presented with left leg pain and progressive paraparesis. Imaging revealed a large intradural tumour compressing the cauda equina. The lesion was radically resected and histological analysis revealed it to be a paraganglioma. The clinical features of this rare tumour are described with a review of the literature.
