Intraspinal extradural arachnoid cysts are rare lesions occurring with trauma, infection, inflammation, or congenital causes. They are frequently seen in the middle and lower thoracic region. A 41-year-old male patient presented with pain of the back for approximately 3 years and posterolateral-localized intraspinal extradural arachnoid cyst was evaluated at thoracic T6-T7 level on magnetic resonance imaging. Total excision of these cysts enables curative treatment and prevents the formation of cysts again.
