Introducción: in the fulfilment of an internationalist mission in the Clinic of Collaboration located in La Paz, Bolivia, the Cuban physicians received the case of a girl aged 12 carrier of a big back tumor, together with other deformities, never before treated due to a lack of economic resources. The previous physicians had expressed that the surgery was the only way to solve the situation but without to guarantee the life of patient and also due to she lives in a dense region of the country. The objective of this communication is to show a uncommon case in the daily practice and the result of its treatment. Description: the treatment applied was totally surgical, supported by a proper hygienic-dietetic treatment and its latter rehabilitation. Results were excellent; finally it was possible to refer patient to her place of residence, its school and the society. Conclusions: the giant back tumor, together with other deformities in the patient, disappeared after an appropriate treatment.
