597 Possible Causes for Meningomyelocele

  • Cerebral Palsy

    Spinal cord dysfunction may be a result of spinal cord injury, spina bifida (meningomyelocele), or a congenital spinal cord malformation.[web.archive.org]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    A neonate with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency and Arnold-Chiari Malformation (ACM) type 2 underwent lumbar meningomyelocele (MMC) repair.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Presently, the term has come to be restricted to Chiari's types I and II, that is, to cerebellomedullary descent without and with a meningomyelocele, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Type I features similar, but less severe malformations and is without an associated meningomyelocele.[hon.ch]

  • Meningomyelocele

    Meningomyelocele is often associated with type II Arnold-Chiari malformation. Meningomyelocele is a congenital anomaly which presents in utero or at birth.[symptoma.com] A case of invasive squamous cell carcinoma arising in the skin overlying a large lumbar meningomyelocele is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although small meningomyeloceles may be amenable to direct closure by undermining of the surrounding skin, the closure of large meningomyelocele defects is a challenging reconstructive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fraser Syndrome

    Fraser Syndrome is a rare, autosomal recessive syndrome. It's characterized primarily by cryptophthalmos, syndactyly and urogenital malformation. Respiratory malformations are frequently present and not taken into account. To better manage childbirth at the time of delivery it is crucial to get prenatal diagnosis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arnold-Chiari Malformation Type 1

    Type I features similar, but less severe malformations and is without an associated meningomyelocele.[hon.ch] […] traction and displacement of the rhombencephalon as caused by tethering of the spinal cord; may be accompanied in some cases by spina bifida and associated anomalies such as meningomyelocele[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Type II is the most common, and features compression of the medulla and cerebellar tonsils into the upper cervical spinal canal and an associated MENINGOMYELOCELE .[hon.ch]

  • Neurogenic Bladder

    A 3-year-old girl with operated meningomyelocele and urinary incontinence presented with recurrent attacks of watery diarrhea and anuria, which were relieved by urethral catheterization[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 6-year-old girl with meningomyelocele and a neurogenic bladder was managed with clean intermittent catheterization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a 17-year-old girl born with meningomyelocele, hydrocephalus and neurogenic bladder who was maintained on VPS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arnold-Chiari Malformation Type 2

    MENINGOMYELOCELE As noted above Arnold-Chiari patients generally have a meningomyeloceles.[web.archive.org] Gilbert JN, Jones KL, Rorke LB, Chernoff GF, James HE (1986) Central nervous system anomalies associated with meningomyelocele, hydrocephalus, and the Arnold–Chiari malformation[doi.org] A third of patients with meningomyelocele develop brain stem dysfunction by the age of 5 years and a third of these die in infancy.[patient.info]

  • Urinary Tract Disease

    Anatomic conditions can predispose to UTI: stasis or obstruction, posterior urethral valves, bladder or ureteral diverticulum, urinary tract stones, meningomyelocele, vesicoureteral[clinicaladvisor.com]
