A spinal synovial cyst is an uncommon lesion associated with degenerative spinal arthropathy. It can cause radicular symptoms and may masquerade clinically as other, more common entities. A 50-year-old female presented with an intraspinal synovial cyst at the L5-S1 level manifesting as lower back pain and right leg pain. The patient's clinical symptoms improved after surgical management. Intraspinal synovial cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of the patients presenting with acute radicular symptoms.
