Abstract: Juxta-facet cysts are relatively uncommon intraspinal lesions, causing radiculopathy, neurogenic claudication or myelopathy. To the best of our knowledge, only 4 cases of bilateral synovial or ganglioncysts were described. We report the 5th case of bilateral ganglioncysts of the lumbar spine. Generally, juxta-facet cysts should be differentiated from other intraspinal lesions, such as herniated discs, meningiomas and neurinomas. Correct preoperative diagnosis is necessary for adequate treatment, namely the (microscopic) resection of the cyst. After adequate treatment, complete recovery may be expected.
