Abstract

Malignant lymphoma compression of the cauda equina is rare. In the literature only a few cases have been described with occasional long term survivors. We report another case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma presenting with cauda equina compression. Significant palliation and long-term survival were achieved after therapy by decompressive, cytoreductive surgery; local irradiation; and chemotherapy.
