Surgical treatment of thoracic menigocele associated with neurofibromatosis and kyphoscoliosis

A 46-year-old man presented with a lateral thoracic meningocele associated with cutaneous neurofibromatosis type I and kyphoscoliosis of the thoracic spine upon medical examination. In the majority of such cases, these meningoceles remain asymptomatic, but surgery is indicated when giant or symptomatic cysts are present. The large thoracic meningocele was successfully extirpated through the transthoracic approach in combination with lumbar puncture and cerebrospinal drainage for decompression of the cyst
