Cavernous angiomas or cavernomas are uncommon vascular malformations of the central nervous system and spinal involvement is much rarer especially in pediatric patients. We report a case of spinal intradural-intramedullary cavernous angioma in a 14-year-old male child. The cavernoma was located at the level of C6-C7 at the dorsal part of the spinal cord. The diagnosis was made with MRI and the patient underwent surgical treatment. The cavernoma was totally removed with laminotomy and microsurgical techniques. Somatosensory evoked potential monitoring was also used peroperatively. The clinical, radiological and surgical features of this rare case were presented and discussed with reference to the literature.
