Figure 1. Lumbar spine magnetic resonance imaging. (A) Precontrast sagittal T1WI. (B) Fat-saturated mid-sagittal T2WI. (C) Postcontrast midsagittal T1WI. An intradural lesion can be seen at the levels of L5, S1, and S2. The lesion is isointense on T1WI and heterogeneously hypointense on T2WI. Postcontrast images showed a lack of enhancement except for an enhancing focus at the posterior aspect of the lesion. (D) T2 * sequence showed blooming artifacts indicating hemorrhagic content within the lesion. (E, F) Diffusion-weighted and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) sequences showed the corresponding heterogeneous diffusion restriction.
