Figure 1: (a) Mid-sagittal computed tomography of lumbosacral spine suggesting hyperosteotic changes in the posterior surface of L2 vertebral body. The corresponding lumbosacral spine magnetic resonance imaging T2-weighted imaging (b) suggests a well-defined hypointense lesion at the L2 vertebral level with cerebrospinal fluid cut-off and nerve roots displaced; axial magnetic resonance imaging T1-weighted imaging at the L2 level (c, d, and f) suggests intact ventral dura (hypointense black line), with a bony spur-like hyperosteotic changes of vertebral body and well-defined mass located in the intradural extramedullary region; and (e) T2-weighted imaging axial magnetic resonance imaging below the L2 level shows displaced nerve roots to the opposite side
