Intraspinal schwannoma is a rare neoplasm in pediatric patients; cellular schwannoma is an unusual histological subtype of schwannoma. A six-month-old infant with an epidural dumbbell cellular schwannoma presented with progressive weakness of his arms and legs. A spinal MRI revealed an epidural mass from C5 to T4, and a complete surgical resection was achieved after laminotomy and facetectomy. The patient experienced a gradual neurological improvement and was still healthy without recurrence at the latest follow-up. The diagnosis of cellular schwannoma was confirmed on immunohistological examination.
