Core Tip We report a 70-year-old female patient who had been treated for cerebral infarction. She complained of weakness in the right lower extremity and a feeling of stepping on cotton. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a strip of leaking cerebrospinal fluid posterior to the C1-4 vertebrae, and computed tomography showed a "sickle-shaped" disc prolapse with calcification in C4/5. We chose to perform an anterior cervical discectomy. When the prolapsed C4/5 disc was scraped, clear fluid leakage was seen and exploration revealed a 1 mm diameter rupture in the anterior aspect of the dura mater, with no significant cerebrospinal fluid leakage after 1 h.
