Hemangioblastoma of the conus medullaris associated with cutaneous hemangioma



Hemangioblastoma of the conus medullaris associated with cutaneous hemangioma



Pediatric Neurology 4(5): 309-312



A 6-month-old infant is reported with a spinal cord hemangioblastoma located in the conus medullaris associated with an overlying congenital dermal sinus and cutaneous capillary hemangioma. There were no neurologic deficits either preoperatively or following removal of the tumor. The skin and spinal cord lesions were believed to represent an isolated vascular malformation. This spinal cord hemangioblastoma is unusual because of the age of the patient, manner of clinical presentation, location in the caudal spinal cord, and pathologic characteristics. We review the literature and discuss the associations of spinal cord hemangioblastomas with cutaneous and other lesions.
