Primary lymphomatous involvement of spinal cord, nerve roots, and cauda equina is a rare entity and comprises only 0.1% of extra-nodal lymphoma spectrum. Here, we present a case of non-Hodgkin lymphoma involving cauda equina, initially suspected as ependymoma on magnetic resonance imaging that was later confirmed on nerve root biopsy as high B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of L1-S1 nerve roots. F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography was performed for staging workup which showed abnormal metabolic activity within the spinal canal from D10-S2 with no evidence of distant organ involvement.
