Abstract

Neurenteric cyst is a developmental abnormality. It accounts for 0.7-1.3% of spinal axis tumors. This rare lesion results from the inappropriate partitioning of the embryonic notochordal plate and presumptive endoderm during the third week of human development. It is usually associated with other abnormalities like vertebral defects and dorsal enteric cyst. It is one of the components of the split notochord syndrome.
