We report a case of 16 centimeter long schwannoma extended from craniocervical junction to upper thoracic spine that was successfully resected by posterior laminoplasty. However the patient developed postoperative kyphotic deformity at 3 months postoperatively, and it was corrected by anterior corpectomy and plate fixation.
Key Words: Schwannoma; Long segment; Kyphotic deformity
