Abstract: 

Dear Editor-in-Chief Hemangiomas are considered as vascular malformations categorized by the type of vascular channel to capillary, cavernous, venous or arteriovenous (1). Their usual locations are soft tissue, cutaneous or subcutaneous tissue and bone especially vertebra (2). However, intradural extramedullary hemangiomas are rare and most of them fall in cavernous type category. Hereby, we report a woman with intradural extramedullary capillary hemangioma which is exceedingly rare.The patient was a 45-yr-old woman with thoracic spine pain for 6 month. She also had progressive parasthesia of lower limbs without muscular weakness or sphincteric problems. The spinal magnetic resonance imaging revealed a rather wellcircumscribed intradural extramedullary mass at T9-T10 level with a broad dural base mimicking dural tail sign suggestive for meningioma. The mass had isointensity at T1 weighted images and hyperintensity at T2 weighted images. It was homogenously intensified after contrast administration (Figure 1).
Then, the patient underwent surgery with preoperative diagnosis of meningioma. After laminectomy, an intradural mass was explored which was spongy and soft. Resection of mass led to bleeding controlled by cautherizing.
