Spinal epidural angiolipomas (SALs) and spinal intradural extramedullary capillary hemangiomas (SIECHs) are both types of rare benign tumor, and their pathogeneses appear to be associated. The present report is, to the best of our knowledge, the first case of spinal angiolipoma and intradural extramedullary capillary hemangioma occurring at the same spinal level. A 54 year‑old male patient experienced two operations within four months due to the occurrence of SAL and one SIECH at the T3 level presenting with sudden paraplegia. Although the co‑occurrence of SAL and SIECH at the same spinal level is an extremely rare condition, omitting the intradural tumor may be averted via scrutiny of preoperative images.
