This report describes a subependymoma of the filum terminale evaluated by MRI. The mass demonstrated hyperintense signal on conventional spin echo Tl-weighted, proton density, and T2-weighted imaging and nonenhancement after intravenous gadolinium administration. These characteristics distinguish this lesion from other more common neoplastic and inflammatory lesions arising in the lumbar spinal canal that are typically isointense on Tl- weighted spin echo acquisitions, hyperintense on T2-weighted imaging, and enhance variably after intravenous gadolinium administration.
