Iatrogenic spinal epidermoid tumors are rare and implanted. Implanted skin fragment by trauma or lumbar puncture is thought to be a possible cause. Because of the lag in time between the lumbar puncture and the development of a symptomatic tumor, this relationship is usually overlooked and can cause a delay in diagnosis. We present a case of intraspinal epidermoid tumor developed 7 years after a lumbar puncture.
