Abstract

Masson's hemangioma is a rare benign pathological entity. A unique case is reported of a 42 year old man with a spinal epidural mass who developed acute cord compression resulting in sudden onset of paraplegia. Histological examination of the resected mass revealed a cystic vascular lesion associated with papillary endothelial cell proliferation, and overlying thrombosis, consistent with Masson's hemangioma. Clinicoradiological correlation is also presented.
