L3 nerve root neuroma

There is a soft tissue mass just lateral to the left L3/4 foramen intimately associated with the L3 nerve root in the lumbar plexus.
The mass demonstrates high signal on T2-weighted sequences, and low signal on T1-weighted sequences. There is a more fluid peripheral component with a solid central component and the lesion measures 2.0cm X 1.6cm X 1.7cm.
There is avid contrast enhancement of the central component.
These appearances are consistent with a nerve sheath tumour of the left L3 nerve root within the lumbar plexus in the medial aspect of the psoas muscle. The target appearance on T2 strongly favours a neurofibroma.
