MRI demonstrates thickening and clumping of cauda equina nerve roots. 

Case Discussion

This patient apparently had chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) confirmed on nerve biopsy. Clumping of nerves is also seen arachnoiditis and leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. Post-contrast images, not available for this case, would be useful.
