Abstract

Two patients with proven intramedullary spinal cord hemangioblastomas were examined with intraoperative ultrasound. The ultrasonic features of a hyperechoic intramedullary mass accompanied by nearby cysts and, in one case, by a syrinx correspond with well-known pathological and computed tomographic descriptions of these tumors. Ultrasonic guidance enabled the surgeon to identify the exact location of the tumors and to proceed with the surgery, limiting the dissection to the area detected. The ultrasound also revealed cysts associated with the tumors, thus providing valuable information to guide the progress of surgery.
