ABSTRACT

Study Design: A case report. Objectives: To report a case of cauda equine syndrome due to a lumbar intradural disc herniation. Summary of Literature Review: IDH is rare but there is a higher incidence of neurologic deficit in IDH. Therefore, it should be treated immediately. Materials and Methods: A 34-year-old male patient was presented with cauda equina syndrome due to a lumbar intradural mass and underwent surgical excision. Results: Operative findings and the histologic study revealed an intradural disc herniation. Conclusions: IDH is very rare lesion but should be considered in a differential diagnosis if preoperative MRI demonstrates an intradural lesion.
