Abstract

Diastematomyelia is an uncommon dysraphic condition in which the spinal cord is split, with or without a fibrous, cartilaginous, or bone septum. The septum usually occurs in the lower thoracic or lumbar regions. Most of the patients with this condition are children of less than the years old. The condition is much less common in adults. Congenital tumor associated with diastematomyelia is more uncommon finding. Now, authors report one case of diastematomyelia combined with intradural cystic teratoma who is eighteen years old female patient.
