ABSTRACT

Study Design: Case report Objectives: We report a case of relatively rare multiple bilateral perineural cysts. Summary of Literature Review: Tarlov cysts, also known as perineural cysts are most often found in the sacral region, but there are a few cases reported in the thoracic region. In particular, there are very few cases of multiple bilateral thoracic perineural cysts. Materials and Methods: A woman aged 65 years with perineural cysts in the bilateral T10-T11 and T11-12 neural foramens, underwent a T10-11-12 decompressive laminectomy and resection of the cyst. Results: Satisfactory results were obtained for the patient after surgery. Conclusions: For more detailed and definitive treatment of thoracic perineural cysts, additional cases are required. Key Words: Thoracic spine, Multiple bilateral perineural cysts
