Abstract :

Neurenteric cyst is a rare duplication cyst of the spine which accounts for 0.7% to 1.3% of the spinal axis tumors. It is associated with abnormalities of the vertebral bodies in 50% of the cases but very rarely it is associated with upper thoracic diastematomyelia. Diastematomyelia is a form of spinal dysraphism where the spinal canal is split by a fibrous, cartilaginous or bony septum into two portions. Both these lesions appear to have same embryologic origin but their coexistence is very rare. Here we are presenting a child who presented with persistent cough and respiratory distress. Upon investigation it was found that the child has posterior mediastinal neurenteric cyst and upper thoracic diastematomyelia along with other anomalies of the vertebral bodies. It is a very rare presentation and no such case has been reported in literature.
