Abstract

The ventriculus terminalis is an ependymal cystic cavity in the conus medullaris, sometimes found in children. Persistence of the ventriculus terminalis in adults can cause lower back pain or neurological disturbances. However, there are no literature reports of de novo formation of a ventriculus terminalis in the conus medulallaris, as in the case we illustrate here.
