Spinal adhesive arachnoiditis (SAA) is a rare, but often devastating, cause of compressive myelopathy. We report a patient with SAA resulting in a longitudinally extensive T2-hyperintense spinal cord lesion with initial nodular pial and dural enhancement mimicking neurosarcoidosis. Neurologists should be aware of this entity, especially in patients who have pertinent risk factors, such as prior meningitis, spinal cord trauma, or surgery.
