Summary: Thirty-three families of indivduals with a history of spina bifida, with myelomeningocele were studied. Each member was HLA typed and had a spinal X-ray. The incidence of spina bifida occulta, and laminal asymmetry of the lumbo-sacral spine in sibs and parents is high. No association between these abnormalities the HLA system was found.
