Abstract

The authors describe a case of a spinal intramedullary pseudocyst at T-1 that did not communicate with the surrounding spaces. The cystic wall was composed of dense connective tissue without epithelial or neoplastic cells. The patient's condition improved dramatically after surgical removal of the cyst. The literature on spinal intramedullary cystic lesions is reviewed and the etiology of pseudocysts is discussed. This case is believed to be the first in which a pseudocyst has been demonstrated within the spinal cord.
