Spina bifida or cranium bifidum result from a failure in fusion of skull(cranium bifidum) or the vertebral column(spina bifida). These entities are the most common anomalies of the nervous system which are associated with major abnormalities of cellular migration, and secondary mechanical deformities of the nervous system. During the last 12 years from Jan. 1967 to Dec. 1978, 83 cases of spina bifida and cranium bifidum had been admitted to the department of Pediatrics, Severance Hospital and evaluated clinically. Literature review were also made birefly.
