Multiple extra cranial schwannomas are generally associated with neurofibromatosis (NF) syndromes. Presence of multicentric schwannomas in absence of NF2 is a very rare entity. Schwannomatosis is defined as an extremely rare tumor syndrome characterized by multiple schwannomas with no associated evidence of NF1 or NF2 syndromes. Numerous genetic and molecular analyses done for these tumors have established them as distinct clinical syndrome. Very few cases of schwannomatosis have been reported so far in English literature. The authors herein present a case of spinal schwannomatosis presenting as conus-cauda syndrome.
