We report a rare case of lumbar intradural dermoid cysts. A 19 year-old male presented with low back pain for 3years. Physical examination revealed no abnormalities including skin lesions. On the magnetic resonance images, multiple intradural extramedullary cystic lesions were found in the lumbar region. These lesions were removed surgically. Histologically, the mass turned out to be a dermoid cyst. We think those were unusual intraspinal dermoid cysts because they were not associated with other congenital spinal malformation, and located in the intradural extramedullary region. We report this case of lumbar dermoid cysts with a review of literatures.
Key Words: Dermoid cyst; Intradural extramedullary location; Dysraphism
