Cystic lesion at the anteromedial aspect of left L5-S1 facet joint compressing left S1 traversing nerve root consistent with a spinal synovial cyst. These cysts occur as a result of facet joint arthropathy and can cause spinal canal or nerve root compression. In the above case with left radiculopathy, spinal synovial cyst is the likely culprit.
