A case of a ganglioglioma of the conus medullaris extending between T-12 and L2 segments is reported. The tumor was succesfully removed by third stage operation. Ganglioglioma located in the conus medullaris is extremely rare. The best treatment of spinal cord ganglioglioma is totally tumor excision even when multiple stage operations are necessary.
