Gadolinium-DTPA enhanced MR imaging of intradural neurenteric cysts

J Comput Assist Tomogr. Sep-Oct 1988;12(5):762-4. doi: 10.1097/00004728-198809010-00008.

Abstract

Neurenteric cysts are rare congenital lesions that may cause spinal cord compression. Two cases are reported emphasizing the value of magnetic resonance imaging without and with contrast medium (Gd-DTPA) administration.
