This report presents a case of a meningioma of the thoracic spine with a wide range of symptoms in a 23-year-old woman. The factor, which was making difficult the proper diagnosis, was atypical for a meningioma MRI--scan, mimicking intramedullary tumour. The tumour was removed radically with a favourable clinical outcome. Clinical history, surgical treatment and neuropathologic findings are described. A review of pertinent literature is included.
