Cloacogenic carcinoma is a rare tumor, originating from epithelium of the anal transition zone. We report a 63-yr-old man with pathologically proven cloacogenic carcinoma which caused a rapidly progressive paraparesis and changes in mental status. These were related to extramedullary deposits around the spinal cord and cauda equina and intramedullary deposits in the brain. This pattern of neural involvement with anal canal carcinoma has not been reported previously.
