Gangliogliomas are relatively rare primary tumors of the central nervous system (CNS). It may occur throughout the CNS, predominantly the supratentorial area. Spinal cord ganglioglioma is a very rare entity. Majority of spinal gangliogliomas occur in the cervical region followed by the thoracic region. The involvement of conus is the least common site of affection. Here we present a case of intramedullary ganglioglioma involving D10 to conus in a middle-aged female with uncommon magnetic resonance imaging findings.
