A rare case of type 1 C split cord malformation with single dural sheath.

Garg K, Mahapatra AK, Tandon V - Asian J Neurosurg (2015 Jul-Sep)

Bottom Line: Split cord malformation (SCM) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the cord is split over a portion of its length to form double dural tubes (SCM type I) or two hemicords in a single dural sheath (SCM type II).Dachling Pang classified SCM into 2 types with type I SCM consisting of two hemicords, each contained within its own dural sheath and separated by rigid osseocartilaginous median septum.We report a rare case of SCM type 1 c in which there was a single dural sheath.

ABSTRACT
Split cord malformation (SCM) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the cord is split over a portion of its length to form double dural tubes (SCM type I) or two hemicords in a single dural sheath (SCM type II). Dachling Pang classified SCM into 2 types with type I SCM consisting of two hemicords, each contained within its own dural sheath and separated by rigid osseocartilaginous median septum. We report a rare case of SCM type 1 c in which there was a single dural sheath.

Figure 2: NCCT spine (axial view) showing bony spur attached to posterior surface of vertebral body

Mentions: A 10-month-old girl presented to us with a tuft of hair over the lower back since birth. She was moving her lower limbs less as compared to her upper limbs. Bladder and bowel functions were not impaired. Examination revealed tuft of hair in midline in the lumbar region. She also had scoliosis with curvature towards the left side. Her head size was normal for her age. Noncontrast Computed tomography spine revealed bony spur at the level of L3 vertebral body [Figure 1] and it was directed superiorly [Figure 2]. Magnetic resonance imaging scan was done which showed spinal dysraphism in the lumbosacral region with split cord malformation type 1 with two hemicords separated by a spur [Figure 3 and 4]. Cord was ending at L3 [Figure 3].
