Author information

Department of Neurosurgery, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.


An enterogenous cyst of the craniocervical region producing anterior medullary compression is reported. The patient presented with quadriparesis with greater involvement of the upper limbs. Computed tomography showed a high attenuation intradural extramedullary mass located anteriorly. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a high intensity mass extending from the pontomedullary junction to the second cervical vertebra, flattening the medulla and upper cervical cord. Complete recovery ensued following total excision of the cyst.
