This case of a 68-year-old woman with a low-thoracic intramedullary neurenteric cyst is notable for clinical presentation, cyst location, intraoperative findings, and imaging characteristics. The patient's postoperative course was complicated by neurological deterioration and a neuropathic pain syndrome. Potential causes of these complications are discussed, as are possible ways to reduce the risk of their occurrence.
