We describe a case of an occult spinal neurenteric cyst associated with congenital hemivertebrae. Different intraspinal anomalies, such as neurenteric cysts (representing 0.3 to 0.5 % of all spinal tumors) have been reported in association with congenital hemivertebrae. Indeed, although CT is the best examination to study vertebral anomalies, MRI should be performed in order to exclude a more complex dysraphic condition.
