Abstract

Split cord malformation and lateral hemimyelomeningocele are 2 rare spinal anomalies, which were both discovered in a female newborn. The constellation of anomalies is presented in the setting of Chiari II malformation. Cross-sectional imaging of the salient abnormalities in the form of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging along with 3-dimensional and multiplanar reformatting is highlighted.
