Tarlov cysts (TCs) are dilated nerve root sheaths originating from increased cerebrospinal pressure. Patients with TCs often complain of neuropathic pain and paresthesia. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) and electrodiagnostic (EDX) data from TC patients.
