treated with antibiotics. † Surgery was intended, but the patient died of massive pulmonary embolus preoperatively. ‡ Hydrocephalus treated with ventriculoperitoneal shunt. § Meningism treated with analgesics. ¶ Hydrocephalus treated with third ventriculostomy. All 21 patients were adults; the mean age was 41.1 (standard deviation, 17.8) years, with a strong male predominance (7:1 ratio). The spinal dermoid cysts were mostly located in the lumbar spine (11 of 21 [52.4%]); others were located in the thoracolumbar (5 of 21 [23.8%]), sacral (3 of 21 [14

circumference, but his neurological exam was otherwise benign. Surgical options, which included endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement, and endoscopic fenestration with aqueductoplasty, were offered nonurgently when the patient reached 3 months of age. Considering the potential for future revisions with shunting and the 50% predicted failure rate calculated by the ETV success score, the family elected to proceed with endoscopic aqueductoplasty. At the time of surgery, intraventricular access was obtained via a right frontal approach using
