Spinal cord compression is a skeletal-related event in advanced malignancies and is associated with serious morbidity and poor prognosis. Despite the palliative nature of laminectomy treatment, it is important to prevent neurological deficits and relieve pain as a means to improve quality of life. Here we report on a prostate cancer patient with spinal cord compression who became ambulant from paraparesis after he underwent a decompression laminectomy; he survived for 9.5 years with good quality of life.
