Epidermoid tumors of the spine are rare and extradural location is very rare. We report 2 cases of extradural epidermoid cyst of spine. A 35-year-old man with T8/T9 disc space originated mass, and a 57 year-old-man with C6/C7 disc level mass. Magnetic resonance imaging of both patients revealed nonenhancing hypointense mass in both T1 and T2 sequences. Both of them based on a diagnosis of disc herniation underwent surgery, but epidermiod cysts were found. This is very rare presentation for the epidermoid tumors.
