Abstract

We report a case of a 51-year-old man with multiple myeloma who presented with lumbar pain and left limb paresis. Cerebrospinal fluid, brain and spinal cord resonance imaging revealed a diffuse infiltration of the cauda equina without any cranial leptomeningeal enhancement. An infiltration limited to the cauda equina is extremely rare.
