Spinal stenosis denoting a critical reduction of the A-P diameter of spinal canal, foramina and lateral recesses can be existed in both cervical and lumbar regions. But it is relatively rare that cervical and lumbar spinal stenosis are coexisted simulataneously. The authors report a case of coexisting cervical and lumbar spinal stenosis with historical background and discussion. The patient was 49 years old male who complained intermittent neurogenic claudication, paraparesis and voiding disturbance. A successful result was obtained through one stage decompressive laminectomies in cervical and lumbar reaions.
