abstract

Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) may rarely remain asymptomatic until degenerative or nondegenerative lumbar diseases superimpose in adulthood and expose the hidden anomaly. In such cases, different treatment options can be selected and simultaneous detethering might be considered too. We are reporting an undiscovered TCS in a young lady who underwent lumbar diskectomy due to symptomatic disk extrusion and suffered complete cauda equina syndrome (CES), postoperatively.
