Primary leptomeningeal gliomatosis and "numb, clumsy hands": a case report



Primary leptomeningeal gliomatosis and "numb, clumsy hands": a case report



Neurosurgery 18(3): 363-366



A 48-year-old man presented with the numb, clumsy hand syndrome. Evaluation revealed a high cervical cord lesion. Surgical exploration discovered leptomeningeal gliomatosis with no discernible intraparenchymal component. The clinical features of the case, the neuroimaging studies including magnetic resonance scanning, and the most unusual pathological nature of the lesion are discussed.
