Epidermoid cyst in the spinal cord is a rare condition. It constitutes of only 0.6-1.1% of all spinal tumors. When they occur, the typical location is in the subdural, extramedullary space of the lumbo-sacral region.We report a forty-two -year-old female who presented with left extremity radicular pain and myelopathy. MRI of the thoracic spine,illustrated a focal fusiform enlargement of the thoracic cord at T4 and T5.Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of epidermoid cyst. The lesion was surgically resected and the pathology revealed we discuss the clinical features, MR imaging characteristics and surgical findings of this rare tumor and review the associated literature.
