Congenital spine anomalies: the closed spinal dysraphisms

Erin Simon Schwartz, Andrea Rossi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The term congenital spinal anomalies encompasses a wide variety of dysmorphology that occurs during early development. Familiarity with current terminology and a practical, clinico–radiologic classification system allows the radiologist to have a more complete understanding of malformations of the spine and improves accuracy of diagnosis when these entities are encountered in practice.
