During this phase, there is a transient communication between the amnion and yolk sac, called the neurenteric canal.
Persistence of the entire primitive Neurenteric canal results in vertebral anomalies, whereas persistence of only part of the canal results in isolated intraspinal cyst.
The main assumption postulates that the cyst forms as a result of primary adhesion of endoderm anterior to the notochord, incomplete fusion of the notochord, persistence of the neurenteric canal or formation of a split notochord and displacement of endodermal cells.5 Hemivertebrae, unsegmentation of vertebra, spina bifida, and clefts in the vertebral bodies are all vertebral abnormalities that can be associated with neurenteric cysts.
