ABSTRACT

Study Design: This is a case report. Objective: We present here a patient who had a discal cyst of the lumbar spine along with neurological symptoms. Summary of the Literature Review: Discal cysts are intraspinal cysts that communicate with an adjacent intervertebral disc, and these are rare lesions that can cause lumbar radiculopathy. Because they are very rare, their natural history and the details of the therapeutic guidelines for the treatment of these cysts are still unknown. Material and Methods: The patient complained of moderate lumbar pain and right lower extremity radiculopathy and he was administered conservative treatment for 5 months. But the radiculopathy became aggravated and he then underwent a hemilaminectomy,cyst decompression and discectomy. Results: The radiculopathy disappeared and any signs of recurrence were not found on the follow up performed at 1 year. Conclusion: Discal cyst is rare, but it can be treated successfully.
