Extradural Sacral Spinal Concurrent Meningioma and Ganglioneuroma Arising from a Nerve Root: Rare Case Report

St Author Kavita Mardi [2] | Nd Tenzin Lhanze Dingyon | Rd Author Akshita Mehta

Abstract: Concurrent occurrence of tumors of different pathological types are exceptionally rare at the same spinal level except for in genetic disorders, such as neurofibromatosis (NF) and von Hippel - Lindau disease (vHL). Concurrent occurrence of meningioma and Ganglioneuroma at the same spinal level has not been reported so far. Such a concurrent tumor arising from the sacral nerve root is exceptional. We report one such exceptionally rare concurrent lymphocyte rich meningioma and ganglioneuroma arising from S2 nerve root in a 38 year old female without any evidence of NF/vHL who presented with lower limb radiculopathy.
