Abstract

The authors present a case of diastematomyelia, a malformation of the neurospinal axis, frequently associated with congenital vertebral deformities. Often asymptomatic, its site different from that of the vertebral deformity, it may go unrecognized if specific imaging diagnosis is not used, thus exposing the patient who is then submitted to surgery for the correction of vertebral deformity to a high risk of neurological complications.
