Spinal schwannomas coexisting with meningiomas in patients without neurofibromatosis are extremely rare lesions. A case of 59-year-old patient with concurrent spinal meningioma and schwannoma at L1-L2 spinal level is presented. Pathogenetic mechanism, preoperative imaging and intraoperative techniques are discussed. This is the first case of the concurrent intradural tumours at the same lumbar level.
