We present the case of a 42-year-old woman with a 5-week history of headache, progressive dysphagia, dysphonia, and hoarseness. A brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed an extra-axial cyst of the left lateral cerebellomedullary cistern. The subsequent histopathologic examination diagnosed a neuroenteric cyst. This case sheds light on the pivotal role of histologic identification of neuroenteric cyst, which could be crucial for further diagnostic investigations, especially in pediatric patients.

Abstract

We present the case of a 42-year-old woman with a 5-week history of headache, progressive dysphagia, dysphonia, and hoarseness. A brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed an extra-axial cyst of the left lateral cerebellomedullary cistern. The subsequent histopathologic examination diagnosed a neuroenteric cyst. This case sheds light on the pivotal role of histologic identification of neuroenteric cyst, which could be crucial for further diagnostic investigations, especially in pediatric patients.
