ABSTRACT


Caudal regression syndrome (CRS) is a rare congenital abnormality in which a segment of the lumbo-sacral spine and spinal cord fails to develop. The severity of the morphologic derangement inversely correlates with residual spinal cord function. We present a case report of a 10-year-old girl with Group 2 CRS, to emphasize clinical and radiologic findings in this rare abnormality.
