Özet

The combination of a thoracic cystic mass with vertebral anomalies on prenatal ultrasound suggests a neurenteric cyst. The outcome of such cysts mostly depends on the extent of the displacement and functional impairment of the adjacent organs and of the associated central nervous system defects. We present a case of a neurenteric cyst diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound at 34 weeks of gestation which was treated successfully in the early neonatal period.
