Tarlov cyst

Meningeal dilations of the posterior Spinal nerve root sheath that most often affect sacral roots and can cause a Progressive painful radiculopathy. Tarlov Cysts are most commonly diagnosed by lumbosacral magnetic resonance Imaging and can often be demonstrated by computerized tomography myelography to communicate with the Spinal subarachnoid space. The cyst can enlarge via a net inflow of cerebrospinal fluid, eventually causing symptoms by distorting, compressing, or stretching adjacent Nerve roots.
