Espina Bífida

El terme defectes del tub neural (DTN) o espina bífida inclou un grup divers de malformacions congènites del sistema nerviós central que afecten predominantment la medul·la espinal i la columna vertebral. En els casos més greus com la mielomeningocele i la meningocele, hi ha una manca de tancament de la columna vertebral que permet que la medul·la espinal surti a l’exterior (defectes oberts) i els més lleus com els lipomes o lipomielomeningocele es manifesten com una tumoració tova coberta de pell, com una zona lumbar pilosa o poden passar desapercebuts (defectes tancats). Els defectes més greus es poden associar a altres malformacions cerebrals (malformació de Chiari II).
