Abstract

Hemangioblastoma, hemangiopericytoma and paraganglioma are uncommon neoplasms which develop uncertain biological behaviour and which are only rarely located at spinal cord. We report three cases: 1) man, 56 years old, affected by lower limbs iporeflexia and inguinal ipoesthesia; in emergency, he underwent posterior decompressive operation at L1-L2, and excission, in medullaris conus side, of a neoplasm identified as hemangioblastoma on histological diagnosis. 2) woman, 31 years old, affected by right limbs iposthenia and ipotrophia, right abdominal iporeflexia, tactile ipoesthesia in right C4 region. After laminectomy, she underwent the excission of a dural neoplasm located in C1-C2-C3 and occipital region; the diagnosis was hemangiopericytoma. 3) woman, 48 years old, affected by left leg ipoesthesia and 60° positive Lasegue test; she underwent extraforaminal excission of neoplasm sited in L4 root, grey-rose coloured; it was diagnosed as paraganglioma. We describe and discuss histological and immunohistochemical features of these three neoplasms.
