We report a 16 year old male patient from rural Ethiopia with pathologically and intraoperatively proven thoracic para spinal and epidural hydatidosis, a very rare involvement, who presented with progresive both lower limb weakness, loss of pain, touch and properioception and double incontinence of two weeks prior to hospital admission. The pathological, radiological (MRI and plain x-ray) and the intra operative findings are briefly discussed with literature review.
