Foregut duplication cysts include bronchogenic, esophageal and neuroenteric
cysts, all arising from the embryonic primitive foregut.
3 One of the most widely accepted theories about the origin of enteric cysts is split notochord syndrome which involves the persistence of neuroenteric
The presacral mass can erode into the rectum leading to neuroenteric
fistulous communication resulting in fatal meningitis and large pneumocephalus.

cysts and their relation to more common aspects of occult spinal dysraphism.
In our case, the key imaging feature was the osseous stalk arising from the basisphenoid portion of the clivus, which is considered a morphologic hallmark of EP and is absent in other retroclival lesions, such as dermoids, epidermoids, arachnoid cysts, and neuroenteric
The gut is innervated by a number of events: neuroenteric
, endocrinological, cerebral, affective, dsthymic, and transferential" (10, 38).
Foregut duplication cysts are true mucus-filled cysts lined with a thin epithelial layer, arising from either bronchogenic, esophageal, or neuroenteric
precursor tissue; the cysts can be differentiated from one another histologically by the identification of the tissue-specific epithelial phenotype.
cysts are rare congenital anonalies, presenting in infancy or childhood.

cysts are embryologically quite separate from bronchial-oesophageal duplication cysts.
They are divided into bronchogenic, esophageal duplication, and neuroenteric
3) Radiographic differential diagnoses of presacral masses in children include sacrococcygeal teratoma, anterior meningocele, neuroenteric
cyst, and lymphoma.
