Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) is an important disease and can produce progressive neurological symptoms. Studies about the filum terminale (FT) have drawn attention to the importance of histopathological investigation of this structure. The most interesting of these subtypes is the FT that incorporates peripheral nerve fibers (PNF). Our study aimed to analyze the frequency of PNF in the FT of 40 cases diagnosed with TCS.
