Abstract

Cervical spinal tumor with large lateral extension is usually removed through posterolateral approach and rarely through anterolateral approach. A young man presented with neck pain and brachialgia.

Post operatively patient recovered from his sufferings and returned to normal life. Here we report the case along with operative technical aspects.
