Özet

Background: Primary spinal hydatid cysts are uncommon and account for 1% of all cases of hydatid disease. Echinococcus granulosus is most often responsible for the cyst hydatid. Intradural, extramedullary involvement is rare. When the cysts do not demonstrate typical magnetic resonance imaging findings, the differential diagnosis is more complex.
