Spina bifida

Spina bifida

Spinal bifida is a developmental birth defect caused by a failure of fusion of the vertebral arches and possibly the underlying neural tube. There are two types: spina bifida occulta in which the split in the vertebrae is so small that the spinal cord does not protrude and spina bifida cystica, in which a cyst protrudes through the defect in the vertebral arch.
