Clear cell meningioma is an extremely rare variety of meningiomas, occurring most frequently at the cerebellopontine angle and spinal canal. In the present study, we describe the case of a 17 year-old girl with chronic lumbar pain and lower limb paresthesia. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbo-sacral spine showed a mass lesion occupying the spinal canal from L5 to S1. Complete resection was performed and the anatomo-pathological examination revealed a clear cell meningioma. The patient remains symptom free and no recurrence was radiologically evident after six months of follow-up.
