Abstract

An MRI of the spine was performed in a 5-month-old girl to assess the cause of lower-extremity paralysis. The images showed a left paraspinal mass at the lumbar level invading the spinal canal, which suggested possible neuroblastoma. A subsequent MIBG scan showed abnormal activity in the spinal canal. Neuroblastoma was confirmed pathologically.
