We report a rare case of idiopathic spinal cord herniation (ISCH) with a history of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. ISCH is a protrusion of the spinal cord through a dural defect. Thin constructive interference in steady-state (CISS) images clearly demonstrated the herniated cord in the present case. The myelopathy worsened and the patient underwent surgery for reduction of herniated spinal cord; the dural defect was filled by placing collagen matrix graft (DuraGen®) between the inner and outer dural layers. The patient's symptoms have improved without relapse for 8 months since surgery. This method may be a good surgical option for cases of spinal cord herniation.
