Hypertrophic pachymeningitis is an infrequent cause of spinal cord compression, secondary to an intracanal and extramedullary inflammatory infiltrate in patients with Wegener’s disease, and it produces canal stenosis and spinal cord compression. We present the case of a patient with this rare entity, providing explanatory images, who was treated with corticosteroids with partial remission of the lesions.
