ABSTRACT
We present the clinical, radiological and pathological features of a case of neurenteric cyst occurring at the low cervical region in a 30-year-old female. The patient complained paresthesia and weakness in her low extremities. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed intradural extramedullary cyst at C6 level. It was located ventral to the cord and was not associated with vertebral anormaly or mediastinal mass lesion. We operated through anterior approach and excised the cyst. This congenital cyst is important because it is readily amenable to surgery.
Key Words: Neurenteric cyst; Intradural extramedullary
