Abstract

Spinal intradural ependymal cysts are extremely rare. The case presented is the sixth reported in the literature. The symptoms are consistent clinically and radiologically with a spinal intradural space-occupying lesion. The cyst wall is lined with both ciliated and nonciliated cells, resting directly on connective tissue. The exact embryonal origin of these cysts is obscure.
