A 64-year-old man who had been diagnosed as having acute myelocytic leukemia (M2 in the FABclassification) developed central nervous system involvement of intramedullary spinal cord during hematological remission. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a low signal intensity mass on Tl-weighted images and a high signal intensity mass on T2-weighted images. The mass was slightly enhanced by gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid. His neurological symptoms were slightly improved by intrathecal
