Mobile intradural tumors are very rare. In most cases, mobile tumors such as nerve sheath tumors or ependymomas are located in the cauda equina. Only few cases of mobile neurinoma have been reported in the cervical and thoracic region. Here we report a rare case of a mobile intradural schwannoma initially located at lower cervical region that had caudal migration on subsequent scan.
