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

Echography is considered to be an effective low-cost noninvasivemethod and plays a critical role in diagnosing or ruling out occult spinal dysraphism at birth [2]. Risk factors, prenatal screening and diagnosis, and pregnancy management.

Dietary supplement fact sheet: Ultrassonografia Geral Relato de Caso: Previous human studies have also demonstrated that the severity of spinal dysraphism lesion may be underestimated with radiography and ultrasonography, and have recommended that patients should also be evaluated using MRI or Myelo-CT to delineate spinal cord lesions, the position of neural structures and associated anomalies Orakdogen et al Canine and feline neurology.

These included duplication of the spinal cord with one dural sac diplomyeliasegmental aplasia and hypoplasia of the spinal cord.

Environmental, genetic, and nutritional factors have been reported to cause neural tube defects in laboratory mice including drugs, physical agents hyperthermiavitamin excess or deficiency folic acidmaternal infectious and metabolic diseases Gutierrez et alHrubec et al These spinal cord lesions most likely occurred during primary neurulation and are uncommon in domestic animals.

A fine radiopaque line of contrast medium is observed between the two hemicords black arrow. Int J Epidemiol 1, This case was different from our protocol because the neonate was referenced to realize the transfontanellar ultrasound, and only after the observation of cutaneous stigma, the protocol of occult spinal dysrapism was performed.

Scar at the perineal area were probably due to previous decubitus ulcers or skin irritation associated to decrease sensation dusrafia the perineal area.

Disrafiq tomography without contrast can be ddisrafia to demonstrate bone lesions defects and malformations Thrall A ultrassonografia tem sido utilizada para avaliar o canal medular desde [2]. The ultrasonographic findings from the spine were 1 discontinuity of the posterior bone layers in the L5 and S1 projections, with an intracanal solid formation presenting undefined margins and a heterogenous hyperrefringent interior, adhering to the distal segment of the medullary cone; 2 a medullary cone extending beyond the L3 body Figure 2.


The neonate underwent corrective surgery and, over a six-month followup, presented normal neuropsychomotor development.

Basedon thephysicalfindings, cases of spinal dysraphism can be grouped into two categories: Indique a um amigo Imprimir. The neurologic localization was supported by the Myelo-CT findings. Because of the mild neurologic dysfunction, owners of the dog from this report declined surgery and chose to keep the dog as pet.

Alpha-fetoprotein AFPsingle marker screen, maternal, serum. Overview of the management of myelomeningocele spina bifida.

Magnetic resonance imaging should be reserved for patients with positive or inconclusive results from ultrasonography, for confirmation of the diagnosis and surgical planning, as reported in the present case, in which the ultrasonographic findings were fully confirmed by the magnetic resonance imaging.

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].

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. High-resolution ultrasonography using a linear transducer made it possible to identify and characterize the lesion, and magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the type of lesion lipomyelomeningocele and enabled adequate surgical planning.

Humans patients who are ambulatory with non-progressive signs may have an acceptable adult life. Spinal dysraphism is a developmental disorder that is characterized by several structural and functional abnormalities of the spinal cord, vertebral column, muscles and skin McGeady et al This is the first report assessing spinal cord duplication in dogs using CT myelography.

Pang et al classified split spinal cord malformation as type I or diastematomyelia where two individual dural tubes are found, sometimes separated by an osseous or cartilaginous septum. Ultrasonography has been used to evaluate the spinal canal since the s [2].


Endoscopic third ventriculostomy for the treatment of hydrocephalus in a pediatric population with myelomeningocele. Theultrasound has great capacity to assess the vertebral canal. We believe that ultrasonography should be performed on patients who are at high risk of occult spinal dysraphism, such as those presenting cutaneous stigmas, congenital abnormalities, or neurological alterations, as ameans of early diagnosis, thereby avoiding neuropsychomotor sequelae later on.

Follow up telephonic conversations over the next 3 months revealed that the owner did not notice additional neurologic signs in the dog. Pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of myelomeningocele spina bifida. Pathological changes may also include spinal cord lesions such as myeloschisis spinal cord cleftamyelia, diastematomyelia split cord malformation type Idiplomyelia split cord malformation type IIabsent or misshapen dorsal and ventral horns, hydromyelia and syringomyelia Andro et al 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.

Imaging diagnosis-ultrasonographic diagnosis of espknal in a calf. Mild paraparesis, bunny hopping, decreased flexor reflexes in pelvic disrafix and decreased perineal reflex and urinary-fecal incontinence are common neurologic findings HoskinsDewey Escrito por el personal de Mayo Clinic. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Blackwell Publishing, Oxford, UK. Granberg CF expert opinion. 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.

De Lahunta A, E Glass.

Sweeps in longitudinal and transverse planes were performed, with the aims of making a detailed assessment of the contiguity of the anatomical features with themedullary canal: However, detecting this condition in neonates is risrafia since the neurological signs in these patients are not apparent. Early diagnosis of spinal dysraphism is very important in order to minimize the sequelae that occur in patients who are not diagnosed before the growth spurt, who may suffer neural disorders due to medullary ischemia.
