Enterogenous cysts (ECs) are uncommon, inborn lesions of central nervous system, which largely occurred within the ventral facet of the spinal twine in addition to widespread in kids; grownup intracranial cysts are uncommon. Though the morbidity of intracranial ECs is kind of low, we can also make a preliminary analysis of these sufferers with the assistance of imaging examination. On this article, we launched 1 case of ECs ventral to the brainstem, which current photographs on magnetic resonance imaging as hypointense lesions on T1-weighted and high-intensity mass on T2-weighted picture. In consideration of the issue of the surgical strategy and the surgical visible subject publicity, we use microscope and nerve endoscope to design personalised surgical strategy to reduce the surgical damage. Pathologic examination confirmed that it was typical EC. Not solely is the situation extraordinarily uncommon, but in addition the surgical technique is unusual on this illness. We not solely research the intracranial ECs’ manifestations, but in addition focus on the surgical strategy and the appliance of nerve endoscope of our selection,which goals to supplies a brand new surgical therapeutic strategy for these lesions.
