Abstract/OtherAbstract:
41 cases of cervical intradural disc herniation have been reported in the literature, none at the C7-T1 level. We describe a case of myelopathy after a fall. The female patient suffered an ataxia of the legs in combination with unilateral C8 cervicocephalgia and hypaesthesia. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a space-occupying lesion at C7-T1, so we suspected a tumour. After a dorsolateral approach, an intradural disc herniation was found. Six months after the operation, the patient is free of complaints.
