It may be suspected in asymptomatic newborns because it is generally associated with abnormalities of the adjacent skin, such as cutaneous stigmas, hemangiomas, hair tufts, cutaneous appendices, sacrococcygeal dimples, and subcutaneous masses, particularly in the lumbosacral region [4].

Additionally, three-dimensional CT reformatting software tools can be used to more clearly visualize the surface appearance of the vertebral column defects including spina bifida, hemivertebrae and others. Routh JC, et al. Cases of spinal dysraphism are rare, even in newborns with cutaneous stigmas. Spinal ultrasound in infants.

In this abnormality, the spinal cord is lowand anchored by the lipoma [2].

High-resolution ultrasonography is a fast and accurate method for screening for occult dysraphic lesions. Ferri’s Clinical Advisor The diagnostic hypothesis was that a defect of the medullary canal was present in the region of the cutaneous stigma, with anchored spinal cord and an intracanal solid medullary formation with apparent peripheral invasion that was continuous with the spinal cord, suggestive of a lipoma. Vet Rec In three prospective studies in the literature, the highest incidence reported, in an evaluated population of 2, patients, was 7.

These characteristics were consistent with segmental spinal cord aplasia and hypoplasia respectively figure 2. However, the sonographic evaluation on this case was unable to provide additional information about the spinal cord anomaly probably due to advance stage of vertebral ossification in the dog.

Lipomyelomeningocele is a form of spinal dysraphism in which the lipoma invades the dural sac, and it may envolve the nerve roots and medullary cone [1].

Computed tomographic myelography images revealed oxulta vertebral arches in L6 consistent with spina bifida, and a small meningocele sac at L6.


However, no spinal cord anomalies were detected on the sonographic images. The neurologic localization was supported by the Myelo-CT findings. Epinal Lahunta A, E Glass. Here, we present a case of a five-day-old neonate with occult dysraphism of lipomyelomeningocele type who presented cutaneous stigmas, and we demonstrate the main ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance findings from the spine.

There was no additional espinl available from the mother related to drugs that may have taken during her pregnancy or exposure to infectious agents or chemicals.

Br J Radiol 75, SUMMARY Spinal dysraphism is a congenital defect of the vertebral column and spinal cord secondary to imperfect closure of the caudal neuropore of the developing neural tube. Braz J Vet Pathol 1, CASE REPORT A disrfia white female neonate was sent to our service for transfontanellar ultrasonography to be performed, because of the presence of cutaneous stigmas in the lumbar region. Magnetic resonance imaging is another diagnostic imaging method for evaluating cases of occult spinal dysraphism.

Patel DM, et al. Because of the possibility of irreversible sequelae through delayed diagnosis, a screening method for patients at high risk of occult spinal dysraphism becomes necessary [7]. Physical examination revealed scars in the perineal area, a short tail and a palpable depression in the spinous process of the sixth lumbar vertebra.
