Melanotic Schwannoma (MS) is a kind of potentially malignancy, which is rare in clinical practice, with a low incidence. We report a case with lumbar vertebra MS admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery in the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University in June 2022. This patient hospitalized at local hospital several times. After receiving medication, his symptoms had worsened. MRI examination shows the symptom was caused by the tumor compressing the nerve root. After surgical treatment, the patient's pain symptoms had improved significantly. The patient discharged 5 days after surgery. The patient has been living normally so far.
