A case of hemangioblastoma of the spinal cord is described in which the tumor presented in an intradural extramedullary location. The patient did not have von Hippel-Lindau's disease or metastatic seeding. It is assumed that the tumor arose in the pia, and its direction of growth was purely extramedullary.
