Choroid plexus papilloma is a rare intracranial neoplasm. These lesions most commonly present in the fourth ventricle in adults and lateral ventricle in children. Herein, we report a case of a 57-year-old male with complaint of backache of few weeks duration. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intradural and extramedullary space occupying lesion at D8 level. Histology showed multiple free-floating papillae with a central fibrovascular core. The cells showed immunoreactivity for vimentin, glial fibrillary acidic protein, synaptophysin, S-100 protein, and cytokeratins (CK, CK7).
