Large cell tumors (GCTs) are uncommon, benign, and regionally aggressive main bone neoplasms. Backbone is seldom affected, particularly above the extent of sacrum. On this report, we describe a case with GCT of the cervical vertebrae which causes collapse of the corpus. A 32-year-old feminine introduced with gradual neck ache and abrupt paresthesia of the left hand. Computed tomography scan confirmed C6 vertebral collapse and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated vertebral plana of C6 by a low sign depth lesion on T1- and T2-weighted photographs. Emergent surgical intervention was taken on account of the potential for spinal damage. The tumor was eliminated by en-bloc resection and histopathological investigation confirmed GCT. In many of the instances, en-bloc resection of GCTs of the backbone isn’t possible. Regardless of the placement and shut contact of the lesion with spinal twine, later strategy was profitable for our case; thus, acceptable differential prognosis for vertebral column lesions in addition to choosing an optimum remedy is necessary.
