Axial T2WI (Figure 8(a)
), axial postgadolinium (Figure 8(b)
), and coronal postgadolinium (Figure 8(c)
) demonstrate a well-defined extramedullary heterogeneously enhancing T2 hyperintense lobulated lesion representing a schwannoma (green arrow) extending along the left C2 nerve root in this patient with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2). This lesion causes effacement of left lateral thecal space at C1-C2 level and abuts the cervical spinal cord on the left, which is demonstrated on Figures 8(a)
. There is widening of left C1-C2 neural foramen (pink arrow) by this lesion. Additional multiple intracranial meningioma (blue arrows) are also identified on coronal postgadolinium image (Figure 8(c)
) in this patient with NF2.
