Spinal schwannomas are benign, slow-growing nerve sheath tumors presenting as insidious lesions. Acute presentation is rare with spinal schwannomas. An intratumoral bleed causing acute presentation with paraplegia and its recovery after surgical intervention is rarely reported in the literature. We report one such case and discuss the possible mechanism for such presentation and the available literature on the subject.
