We ­report a ­patient ­with a ­very ­large myx­op­a­pil­lary epen­dy­moma of the ­spinal ­cord ­eroding the ­lumbar ver­te­bral cor­pora but suc­cess­fully ­treated ­with sur­gery. The ­patient was a 26 ­year-old ­woman ­with a 8 ­year his­tory of low ­back ­pain and weak­ness of the ­legs. Treat­ment was ­delayed ­because of ­unusual ­social con­di­tions.
