Abstract Capillary hemangiomas are benign tumors and tumor like conditions commonly involving skin and mucus membrane of head and neck region. They are extremely rare in the spinal cord. We report a 35-year-old male presenting with gradual progressive paraparesis over a period of 4 months. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a hypo- to isointense intradural mass at the level of D12 vertebral body on T1-weighted images and homogenous enhancement on gadolinium contrast. Complete surgical resection revealed intradural extramedullary tumor, which on histopathologic examination showed characteristics of capillary hemangioma. At 1.5 years followup patient was asymptomatic.
