Holocord syrinx associated with conus ependymoma is a rare entity. Commonly such ependymomas are located in cervical and dorsal regions with only few reports mentioning conus lesions having associated holocord syrinx. This variant responds well to surgery and long term prognosis is favourable. The associated syrinx does not need any specific treatment and does resolve by itself.
