Two cases of thoracic intramedullary schwannoma confirmed by surgery and pathology are reported. These tumors were hypointense on T1WI, and hyperintense on T2WI with good enhancement on MRI. One case showed typical intramendullary tumor, associated with peritumoral cord swelling and syrinx, and another showed both intramedullary and extramedullary location. Schwannomas of the spinal cord, although very rare, Should be included in the differential diagnosis of intramedullary tumor.
