A Case of Spina Bifida Occulta with Faun - tail Nevus

Abstract

This 22-year-old female patient has had a lozenge shaped hair tuft with terminal hair on the lumbosacral area since birth. A limping gait due to discrepancy of the length of the lower extremities has also been noted since 5 year age. Subsequently multiple, recurrent trophic ulceration developed on the left foot because of sensory loss. Simple cervico-lumbar spine x-ray showed spina bifida occulta of L-2 to sacrum. Lumbar myelography revealed widened vertebral canal without other spinal anomaliea.
