Abstract

Ganglioneuroma (GN) is a rare benign neural tumor, usually derived from the ganglia of the sympathetic system. This report describes a 36-year-old man who presented with back pain and local tenderness that closely mimicked the clinical and ima-ging findings of spondylodiskitis. However, histologic examination made the diagnosis of GN. To our knowledge, this is the first report presenting the pattern of a GN as a differential diagnosis of spondylodiskitis.
