We report an 8-month-old girl, only child of unrelated parents, who was admitted to the hospital with the suspicion of spina bifida. Nuclear magnetic resonance showed a complex spinal malformation characterized by dorsal diastematomyelia and hydromyelia. Clinical presentation, treatment and genetic counselling are discussed.
