Hemangiomas, which are usually found in the skin, are extremely rare in an intradural location. An unusual case of capillary hemangioma intimate to the cauda equina is discussed. This entity has not previously been reported in the pediatric or adolescent population to the best of our knowledge, although it has been reported in adults.
