Short Description of Perineural Cysts

Perineural cysts also known as Tarlov cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form on the nerve root sheath, most commonly in the sacral region of the spine but they can also occur anywhere on the spine as well. 

Symptoms of Perineural Cysts

Most cases of perineural cysts are asymptomatic but they can grow in size resulting to pain. 

Symptoms include: 

  • Lower back pain (sciatica)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Headaches
  • Constipation 
  • Sexual dysfunction 
  • Loss of feeling or control of movement in the leg or foot. 

About Perineural Cysts 

Perineural cysts differ from other cysts that form in the sacral region due to the fact that the nerve fibers from the spine are found within the cysts. Women more than men are more likely to develop them.  A patient suffering from a perineural cyst most likely will not notice that he or she has it because they often always never come with symptoms. In the event that they do, however, one of the most common is pain in the lower back, legs and buttocks.  This happens in rare cases when the cysts become too big and is filled with spinal fluid and then begins to press on the adjacent nerves.  Since they rarely cause symptoms, perineural cysts are often missed on examination. The best way to determine if you indeed have them is through imaging methods. The cyst can be drained in order to provide temporary relief but only surgery is the definitive choice to keep them from truly coming back or refilling with fluid and then begin to be problematic once more. Surgery is usually the last resort and is always not successful. Furthermore, it can also leave the patient with worse problems or complications.  There are rare instances when the cysts cause symptoms and is not treated resulting to a permanent damage to the nervous system. 

Patients suffering from perineural cysts are often asymptomatic and the most common symptom if it indeed arises is pain.  The enlarged cysts may compress the sciatic nerve resulting to sciatica. This is characterized by pain in the lower back and buttocks, and sometimes down the back of the legs. The pain can be sharp and sudden or more mild and achy. Sciatica may be accompanied by numbness in the same areas, and muscle weakness in the legs and feet.  In severe cases, where the perineural cyst has become too big, there can be a loss of bladder control, constipation and even sexual function. 

Etiology of Perineural Cysts 

The origin of perineural cysts located in the base of the spine is not known. However, there are reasons why the cysts can grow and cause symptoms.  If a patient experiences some kind of trauma to the back, the perineural cysts begin to fill up with fluid and result to symptoms. The kinds of trauma that trigger symptoms are:

  • Falls 
  • Injuries
  • Heavy exertion 

Diagnosis of Perineural Cysts

Since most do not cause any symptoms, they are typically never diagnosed.  The doctor can order some imaging tests to identify them if there are. An MRI can help as this can show the presence of cysts while a CT scan with a dye injected into the spine can show if fluid is moving from the spine into cysts in the sacrum. 

Affected Populations

Women more than men are at higher risk of developing perineural cysts.  The exact incidence or prevalence of symptomatic perineural cysts in the general population is not known. Due to the fact that these cysts go unrecognized or misdiagnosed, determining their true frequency can be challenging.  The total number of perineural cyst patients in the general population is estimated to be around 4.6 to 9% of the adult population. 

Related Conditions 

Symptoms of the ff disorders may be similar to that of perineural cysts. Comparison of symptoms is needed to be able to have a useful differential diagnosis.  There are different kinds of cysts and tumors that can present with symptoms similar to perineural cysts. This includes meningeal diverticula, meningoceles, neurofibromas, arachnoid cysts and schwannoma. All of these present with compression of the spinal cord or the nerve roots. Arachnoid cysts for instance are also fluid-filled sacs that occur on the arachnoid membrane that covers the brain and the spinal cord.  There are three membranes covering these components of the nervous system and these are the dura mater, arachnoid and the pia mater. The arachnoid cysts appear on the arachnoid membrane and they may also expand into the space between the pia mater and arachnoid membranes.  The most common locations for intracranial arachnoid cysts are near the temporal lobe, near the third ventricle and the area that contains the cerebellum, pons and medulla oblongata.
