Hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HP) is a rare chronic inflammatory process that causes thickening of the dura leading to compressive myelopathy. HP has diverse etiologies like infections, chronic inflammatory processes, collagen vascular diseases and malignancy. We report one such case of HP who presented with compressive myelopathy, underwent decompressive surgery and died due to complications of surgery with the original disease process.
