Cobb syndrome is a rare skin disease that consists of vascular malformation of the spinal cord and cutaneous hemangioma of the corresponding innervated territory. A 20-year-old male presented with segmentally distributed cutaneous angiomatosis over his right T5-T8 dermatomes. No associated neurologic symptoms were noted. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed enhancing leptomeningeal lesions on the posterior surface of thoracic cord from T6 to T8 levels. The diagnosis of Cobb syndrome was, in this case, made before the expression of neurological complication by means of MRI.
