Abstract

Two cases of occult spinal dysraphism with different clinical symptoms, signs and congenital pathologies are presented. One had malformations including scoliosis, dermoid tumor, hydromyelia, diastematomyelia, dermal sinus, low conus, vertebrae anomalies and dextrocardia. The occurrence of dextrocardia in association with occult spinal dysraphism was found to be extremely unusual. The second case is presented in relation to the rarity of teratoma with dermal sinus and tethered cord in the lumbar area. Myelography, computed tomography, (CT), Myelo CT and magnetic resonance were used in making a diagnosis.
