Meningoceles and myelomenin.goceles present with a great variety of locations, forms, sizes and coverings. Neurological function vares from complete paralysis below the level of the lesion to neurological intactness. The most common location of these congenital anomalies is over the lumbosacral region. Many other congenital abnormalities may also be found in these children.
