Summary A case of rare intraspinal sparganosis treated by surgical excision is described. In this 59-year-old male with paraparesis and voiding problem, an intradural mass was noted on myelogram. Magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomographic appearance of spinal and associated cerebral lesion are illustrated and possible route of migration discussed. This represents, to our knowledge, the first MRI demonstration of intraspinal sparganosis reported in the literature.
