Hemangioma of spinal column is a common pathology but purely epidural spinal hemangioma, especially in pediatric age group, is rare and there are very few case reports available in English medical literature. We are reporting a case of cervicodorsal epidural arterio-venous hemangioma without vertebrae involvement in a pediatric patient to highlight difficulty in interpretation and importance of preoperative radiological diagnosis.
