Abstract
Background: Primary spinal tumors are rare. Symptoms depend on the size and location of the tumor.

Case description: A patient presented with a rare clinical finding, Brown-Séquard syndrome. The symptoms were caused by an extramedullary tumor compressing on the thoracic spinal cord. Pathologic examination showed cavernous hemangioma with growth both intradurally and extradurally.

Conclusions: This is an extremely rare finding; to our knowledge, only 1 case report has been published before in which a spinal cavernous hemangioma had intradural and extradural growth. The clinical symptoms of Brown-Séquard syndrome have not been described before in the findings of spinal cavernous hemangiomas.
