Lower back pain is an extremely common and rather vague entity with numerous differentials in its list ranging from congenital to non-neoplastic and malignant lesions. Here, we report a rather unusual cause of back pain resulting from congenital and neoplastic etiology. Synspondylism, which is fusion of the thoracic vertebrae and an intradural extramedullary meningioma of suspicious inva-sive pattern of growth in the same patient is discussed along with a brief review of literature.
