Abstract

Spinal dysraphism is a congenital defect of the vertebral column and spinal cord secondary to imperfect closure of the caudal neuropore of the developing neural tube. This report describes computed tomographic myelography (Myelo-CT) characteristics of spina bifida occulta, spinal cord aplasia/hypoplasia and split cord malformation type II (diplomyelia) in the caudal lumbar area of a 2 month old mixed breed dog.
