Lumbar spine teratoma with associated neuroendocrine tumour (NET) in a 37-year-old woman – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

This article discusses a rare case of spinal teratoma with associated neuroendocrine tumor (NET). The case involves a 37-year-old woman who presented with acute lower back pain and radiculopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an acute disc prolapse and an incidental lesion at a different level of the spine. The patient underwent surgery for the removal of the intradural extramedullary lesion, which was confirmed to be a teratoma with NET. The limited number of reported cases of this type of tumor makes it difficult for clinicians to fully understand its clinical presentation and long-term behavior. This case provides valuable insights for the management and treatment of similar cases in the future

ABSTRACT

Spinal teratoma with associated neuroendocrine tumour (NET) is a rare entity. To date there have been only three such cases reported in the literature. Information available to clinicians regarding clinical presentation, behaviour of this tumour over time, management options and follow-up, are as a consequence very limited. We present a case of a 37-year-old woman who was found to have an incidental lumbar spine teratoma with NET after presenting with a one-week history of acute lower back pain and radiculopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lumbosacral spine demonstrated an acute disc prolapse at the L4/5 level as well as incidental lesion at the L1/2 level causing effacement of the conus medullaris. Lumbar laminectomy with gross total resection of the intradural extramedullary lesion at the L1/2 level was performed with histopathology confirming the teratoma with NET. The objective of our case is to report our experience with this unique tumour and potential management implications.
