Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Synovial cysts are rare and most often associated with degenerative facet joints. In intraspinal extradural localisation the consequence may be myelopathy. Their occurrence is more frequent on the lumbar part, the cervical synovial cyst is considered as a rarity. CASE REPORT - A case of C VII/Th 1 left sided haemorrhagic synovial cyst with inflammated surroundings, causing myelopathy is presented. After extirpation of the cyst, the patient has recovered completely. CONCLUSION - The cervical synovial cyst can cause epidural space-occupation and compression of the spinal cord, leading to myelopathy. Because of its rarity, it is seldom thought of. The neurologic signs are facilitated by the bleeding. The possibility of causative role of the previous epidural anaesthesia can not be excluded. The immediate operative treatment resulted in complete recovery.
