Neurenteric (NE) cysts are uncommon congenital cysts of endodermal origin. These cysts are commonly encountered in the posterior fossa surrounding the brain stem structures.

Including this pathology in the differential diagnosis of supratentorial cystic lesions is important due to the differences in medical and surgical management.
