Abstract

A patient presented with cauda equina syndrome signs on a background of intrathecal pump implantation for chronic pain. Initial investigations were consistent with a granuloma, a common complication of intrathecal pumps. CSF cytometery revealed a lymphocytosis. This patient represented 2 months later with neck signs secondary to a B-cell-lymphoma.
