We present a rare case of split cord malformation (SCM) type II complicated by presence of tuberculous arachnoiditis without any history of systemic tuberculosis or vertebral body lesions. Diagnosis was made based on intraoperative findings and was confirmed by histopathology. Surgical decompression along with a combination of steroid and antitubercular therapy resulted in a good outcome. Clinical features, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), intraoperative findings, pathology and the relevant literature are herein discussed.
