Neurenteric cysts are very rare, particularly in adults. These are congenital intraspinal cysts of endodermal origin. A 67 years old man, presenting with backache and paraesthesiae of one and half years' duration, followed by subacute flaccid paraplegia, developing in a week is described. MRI revealed intramedullary cyst at T7. He underwent emergency thoracic laminectomy and complete excision of the cyst. Histopathology confirmed a neurenteric cyst. In view of their rarity, peculiarity in terms of age, location and presentation, we report this case.
