The patient  started to complain of numbness of the right lower leg 7 months ago, then the left and became with paraparesis more pronounced in the right side with hypalgesia 2 cm above the nipple both sides. MRI done showed a mass well circumscribed at the level D2-3 anterior to the spinal cord more to the right. The patient was operated and the lesion was a calcified schwannoma, which was removed in one piece with the satellite rootlet after releasing the dentate ligament in the right side.

The patient in the next day 01-September-2005 regained full power of his lower extremities and he was complaining only of the wound site pain.
