Intradural cavernomas are rare vascular lesions of the spinal cord. Four cases of histologically verified cavernomas of the cord are reported, of which two were extramedullary and two were intramedullary in location. Progressive neurological deficit was the presenting feature in three cases while one patient had a rapid evolution of neurological deficits and was found at surgery to have had bled from the extramedullary lesion. All the patients were subjected to surgery and total excision of the cavernomas was carried out in each case. While two patients improved after surgery the other two remained static. The available literature on spinal cord cavernomas is reviewed.
