Introduction: Neuroenteric cysts are a rare type of spinal tumors that result of anomalies during embryonic development. A case with a rare haemorrhagic presentation is reported.
Case report: 42 years old male that shows an initial clinical picture consisting of cervical pain. Cervical Magnetic Resonance (MR) reveals a lesion intradural-extramedullar at level C2-C3. Findings are in correlation with hemorrhagic lesion in reabsorption phase. A surgical procedure is performed. Through a bilateral C2-C3 and partial C1 laminectomy the cyst was emptied. The rest of membranes are removed. The patient shows a progressively improvement. The hystopathological analyses find match neuroenteric cyst type A.
Discussion: 58 cases of neuroenteric spinal cysts reported in literature are analyzed. Total excision was performed in about 34%. There was any finding about hemorrhagic presentation in neuroenteric cyst in these cases.
