Intramedullary Spinal Cord Abscess as a complication of the Dermal Sinus 3319-3320
Dr Vikram Dhawan
Department of Paediatrics
Intramedullary Spinal Cord Abscesses secondary to congenital dermal sinus are infrequently seen in paediatric age group. The thoracic spinal cord is most often involved. Although rare, yet treatable, it is imperative that we have knowledge of its existence because misjudgement and delay in necessary treatment may lead to complete paralysis below the lesion. We present a similar case of a 5 year old girl.
