Primary osteochondromas are very rare tumors of the spine, which account for about 4% of bony tumors of the spine. They rarely cause any symptoms. Here, we report a case of a young male patient who presented with cervical compression of the spinal cord. He was treated successfully with complete excision of the lesion, and the diagnosis was proven histopathologically.
