Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) is an uncommon spinal pathology. It can compress the spinal cord and result in a significant neurological deficit. Ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF) is a condition characterized by the formation of ectopic bone in the ligamentum flavum resulting in neurological impairment due to spinal cord compression. The coexistence of both these conditions is not frequently encountered. We present a unique case of a young male patient. He presented with weakness in both lower limbs, gait ataxia, and urinary symptoms due to spinal cord compression at lower dorsal and cervical levels due to OLF and OPLL, respectively.
