Neurenteric cyst(enterogenous cyst) is a rare congenital lesion, usually affecting the lower cervical or upper thoracic areas, and its occurrence in cranial vault is even rarer. We present a patient with intracranial neurenteric cyst anterior to the pons and medulla oblongata. A 40-year old man presented with two-month history of occipital headache and facial spasm. The cyst was decompressed via far lateral suboccipital approach, and the patient recovered without permanent neurological deficits. Features on imaging studies and histological findings are discussed with the review of the literatures.
Key Words: Neurenteric cyst; Intracranial
