In this study, we report a rare case of primary concurrent schwannomas and meningiomas arising at the level of T11 and T8 , respectively. A 39-year-old female was admitted in our department for both lower limb weaknesses. The medical history of patient revealed progressive weakness in both lower limbs and right lower limb intermittent claudication for about a half year, the symptoms worsened in recent one month that presented with flaccid paralysis of both lower limbs. MR images demonstrated the level of T11 and T8 intraspinal occupying lesions. Resection of the mass effectively decompressed the spinal cord. Histopathological examination showed that extradural mass at the level of T11 was schwannoma and intradural mass highly attached to dura matter was meningioma at T8
