Introduction: Intraspinal epidermoid cysts are congenital or acquired in origin; whereas intraspinal neurenteric cysts (NECs) are of congenital origin. Their individual association with spinal dysraphism and vertebral segmentation anomalies is very well known.
Case presentation: We hereby report a case of concurrent intradural extramedullary epidermoid and NEC at adjacent vertebral levels in a spinal dysraphism child, not reported in English Literature till now.
Conclusion: Multiple spinal lesions related to any/all of the 3 germ layers can coexist at same or adjacent vertebral levels in the same patient and surgical planning shown to be done accordingly.
Keywords: Congenital dorsal spine malformations; Epidermoid cyst; Myelomeningocele; Neurenteric cyst; Spinal dysraphism.
