Abstract
The authors describe here a unique case of contiguous, synchronous meningioma and lymphoma in the spinal column. Both tumors were present at the same vertebral level, one intradural and the other extradural. A patient presented with bilateral leg pain, acute weakness, and sensory loss in the lower extremities. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intradural mass at T6-7 with ambiguous boundaries relative to the thecal sac and compressing the spinal cord. The patient underwent resection of the epidural and intradural mass at T6-7. Histopathology revealed the epidural specimen to be a double-hit B-cell lymphoma and the intradural mass to be a transitional meningioma. Postoperatively, the patient did well, with an immediate return of strength and sensation. A postoperative MR image showed complete resection of the intradural mass. The authors suggest that biopsy may be prudent in patients with known systemic lymphoma presenting with a spinal lesion that has unclear boundaries relative to the thecal sac prior to commencing radiation and chemotherapy.
