Hemangiomas have rarely been found in the spinal cord.The authors reported the two cases of capillary hemangioma including the tumor at conus medullaris and the another mimicked von Hippel-Lindau disease. A 15-year-old man was presented with coccydynia and left leg pain. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an intradural extramedullary enhancing mass at conus medullaris. Another case, a 31-year-old man was presented with a history of the familial history of brain tumor, retinal hemangioma both eyes, multiple pancreatic cyst, and syringobulbia with syringohydromyelia. On MRI, a well-circumscribed intramedullary nodule was detected at C5-6 level and multiple subpial nodule along cervicothoracic spinal cord. All patients underwent surgery, and the histological diagnosis confirmed capillary hemangioma. Although rare and indistinguishable from other tumors, capillary hemangioma should be in the differential diagnosis of the spinal cord tumor.
