Spinal ependymoma commonly presents as an intramedullary tumor. We present a rare case of multicentric intradural extramedullary spinal ependymoma. A 59 years old female presented to us with spastic quadriparesis for 10 months. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spinal cord showed discretely located enhancing tumor masses from at C1-C2, C6-C7, and D4 to L3 level. Subtotal resection of the symptomatic tumor at C6-C7 and D7-D9 was done. The patient underwent radiotherapy with 50.4 Gy. At follow-up of 11 months, patient is doing well. The relevant literature is reviewed.
