We present a rare case of thoracic congenital dermal sinus associated with an extramedullary dermoid cyst in an 18-monthold female child, who presented with a 3-month history of motor weakness of both the lower extremities. Magnetic resonance imaging of spine showed an extramedullary dermoid cyst extending from the lower border of T2 to upper border of T5, which was connected with the skin dimple along the sinus tract. Total excision of the dermoid cyst and the sinus tract with T2–T5 laminectomy resulted in excellent functional recovery without any neurological and chemical meningitis.
