A 33yr old female presented with 5months history of spastic quadriparesis, gait ataxia and pain and forceful contractions of the left upper limb. She had been seen in different health centres and diagnosed as conversion disorder. Brain CT was normal, C-spine CT showed a 2*3cm homogenous lesion at C2-C3.Simpsons 2 resection was done with no complications. Post-operative physical rehabilitation with physiotherapy was instituted with good recovery. By 6 weeks' post-operative, she was ambulating without support.
