In pediatric patients, most commonly congenital diseases (ciliary dyskinesia and cystic fibrosis), chronic rhinosinusitis, radiotherapy, previous nasal surgery, trauma, and congenital benign and malignant tumors (dermoid cyst, meningocele, glioma, lymphangioma, angiofibroma, "Ewing" sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, neuroblastoma, adenocarcinoma) may lead to formation of mucoceles (8).
In this study a rare, mature cystic teratoma that was associated with an anterior intrathoracic meningocele and that developed in the posterior mediastinum is presented.
The images from this study showed a large anterior sacral meningocele displacing the bladder anteriorly, superiorly, and towards the right side of the pelvis.

Differentiation from other cystic lesions of the mediastinum like neurenteric cyst, pericardial cyst, thymic cyst, bronchogenic cysts, meningocele, lymphangioma, mature cystic teratoma, cystic schwannomas, cystic thymomas, and cystic tubercular lymphadenitis is important as it has important implications in further management of the patient.

Meningocele (Figure 1(c)) is often described as a less severe variant of myelomeningocele in which the spinal cord is not found in the sac and is described by embryologists to be absent of neural matter in its herniated sac; and its description is often coupled with that of myelomeningocele which clearly has neural matter herniating at the site of the open lesion.

Sumado a esto, se ha podido observar tanto en modelos animales como en embriones humanos que al haber una expresion reducida de SHH puede ocasionar defectos en el tubo neural, tales como holoprosencefalia, meningocele, mielomeningocele, espina bifida y anencefalia (Tsurubuchi et al., 2013; Lu et al, 2015).
Se indica que, por ser una patologia de la linea media, podria tener un origen parecido a los defectos de cierre del tubo neural, meningocele, mielomeningocele, entre otros.
