Paragangliomas of the cauda equina, previously thought to be a rare disease affecting the spine, are being increasingly reported in the literature. This report is of a patient with paraganglioma arising in the cauda equina, and describes the magnetic resonance imaging features, with emphasis on the differential diagnosis of this tumour.
