Figure 1 lumbosacral magnetic resonance imaging showing a giant, well-circumscribed round formation hypointense on T1 weighted images and isointense on T2 ones with dishomogeneous contrast enhancement after Gd-DTPA. A: A sagittal T2-wieghted midline image; B: A sagittal T2-weighted lateral image. Gd-DTPA: Gadolinium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid.

Figure 2 Postoperative spine magnetic resonance imaging showing complete removal of the tumor. A: A sagittal T1-wheighted image after Gd–DTPA; B: A sagittal T2-weighted midline image showing macroscopical total tumor removal. Gd-DTPA: Gadolinium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid.
