Following a diagnosis of multiple intradural tumors of the cauda equina, based on lumbar spine MRI with contrast enhancement, the tumors at the L1 body, L3 body, L3-L4 intervertebral space level were removed completely, involving two rootlets. After the operation, the patient is asymptomatic apart from left S3 dermatome hypesthesia.
