We present a case of a 73-year old female with a giant spinal cord schwannoma WHO grade I at the level of C2/3. We performed the rare lateral approach to the upper spine, a forgotten invasive procedure modified by us for better tumor exposure. The tumor was removed completely with rapid neurological improvement.
