Presentation

No history provided.

Patient Data

Age: Young adult
Gender: Female
MRI

Selected images from an MRI of the spine with contrast demonstrate extremely widespread enhancing masses occupying almost every single neural exit foramen and in some cases resulting in canal stenosis. 

Case Discussion

Phakomatoses often result in some of the most impressive scans, and as many patients have recurrent problems from the numerous tumours they develop, they are frequently and serially imaged.
