Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Five cases of intramedullary cavernous malformations were retrospectively reviewed. There were 4 women and one man ranging in age from 30 to 67 years. Thoracic spinal cord was involved twice and cervical cord in three cases. Four of them underwent surgery: two improved, one remained stable and symptoms worsened in one. Clinical, radiological features and surgical management are discussed in the light of the follow-up and literature analysis. The role of T2* weighted sequence in MR diagnosis of intramedullary cavernomas is emphasised.
