Welcome to the Tarlov Cyst Disease Foundation Website!
Be a part of Tarlov Cyst Research NOW!
Please participate in the Patient Survey on the "Surveys & Research" page. The Foundation is providing compiled data from the surveys to the Tarlov cyst researchers to whom funding has been provided.
This Foundation is dedicated to the mission of finding the best possible solutions that will resolve the life-altering problems caused by symptomatic Tarlov cysts (perineural cysts,sacral nerve root cysts).
The Tarlov Cyst Disease Foundation is an advocate for patients and promotes research and education about Tarlov cysts. The website provides information about symptomatic Tarlov cysts, which may cause such symptoms as sciatica, difficulty sitting or standing for more than short periods of time, coccyx (tailbone) pain, pain in buttocks and legs, leg cramps, paresthesias (strange sensations in legs and feet), bladder and bowel dysfunction,chronic pelvic, abdominal, and genitalia pain. If the cysts are located higher in the cervical,thoracic, or lumbar sections of the spine, the symptoms can cause pain and paresthesias in the neck, shoulders,chest, arms, legs, and lower back.
If you, or a member of your family, friend or a patient has been diagnosed with Tarlov cyst(s), we believe that you will gain beneficial information and hope from your visit to this site. We also hope that you will share with us, what you have already learned, in order to benefit the research and education the Foundation is providing. The composite of our shared information leads to improved communication, understanding and proof that you are not alone in the struggle to find assistance and support. Our combined efforts will provide present and future benefits. Research and education are the keys!
The Foundation's achievement of specific purposes and objectives will provide hopeful solutions for the future. We will work tirelessly to bridge the gap of missing knowledge until that mission is accomplished.
