Abstract

We report a case of a 12 year old girl who presented with cord compression. Imaging studies demonstrated an extradural spinal tumour in the lower thoracic and upper lumbar levels. Histology confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma while associated findings suggested the possibility of Neurofibromatosis Type I.

Keywords
