Neonate with spinal hypoplasia on T12 and a localized vertebral malformation on L4.


We report a case of a neonate with sectional narrowing of the spinal cord on the level of T12 to L2 and a deformed vertebral body on a different level, L4. In previously described cases of sectional spinal dysgenesis, the vertebral and spinal cord malformations are usually found on the same level. Our case may represent a new variant of spinal dysgenesis.
