Lumbar meningocele spurious is a rare complication after lumbar spine surgeries. This results following a breach in the dural-arachnoid layer and extradural encapsulated cerebrospinal fluid collection. On review of the literature, less than 60 cases have been reported so far. Diagnosis of meningocele spurious is confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. Herein, the authors have described a case of meningocele spurious after lumbar spine surgery and its management.
