Ligamentum flavum cysts may cause pain, radicular symptoms and signs. The diagnosis of ligamentum flavum cyst is done by radiologic studies, surgical intervention and histopathological examinations of the ligaments. In an 80-year female patient, in the inner aspect of the ligamentum flavum a cyst about ten mm’s was found, compressing the S1 nerve root. In literature survey seventy-five similar cases were found. Careful exploration, incision and excision of the cyst and the ligament and its adherence to dura mater and facet joint are main problems.
