Abstract
Primarily extradural localization is exceptional posing problems of differential diagnosis even in hydatid endemic countries. We report a case of primary intraspinal extradural hydatid cyst of the dorsal region causing spinal cord compression. The 12-year-old child, living in a rural area with no significant antecedent, presented with gradually increasing three months before his hospitalization a dorsal and lumbarpain installat. He also complained a few days later of numbness and altered sensations in both legs and sphincter disorders. Clinical examination has demonstrated a syndrome of spinal cord compression. Abdominal ultrasound was normal. The diagnosis was an extradural abscess, a dysembryoplastic lesion, or a hydatid localization. A surgical approach was performed in an emergency, consisting of a posterior decompression by laminotomy centered on D12, which resulted in total resection of the cyst repressing and stretching the right root back and the left dural sheath whose hydatid nature was presumptive and confirmed by final histological examination. The immediate consequences were simple.
