Imaging of Complete Vertebral Duplication with Normal Neurological Status: A Rare Case
H. No. 1546, Sector 15, Sonipat, Haryana, India.
Vertebral Duplication represents the most severe aspect of the spectrum of Split Cord Malformations (SCMs). It is a rare anomaly with very few reported cases. Associated other spinal anomalies along with severe neurovascular and genitourinary anomalies may also co-exist. Hereby, authors report a case of a 21-years-old adult female, who presented with history of trauma, incidentally detected to be having complete lumbar duplication along with dural sac duplication and multiple complex segmentation anomalies in the form of incarcerated lateral hemivertebra, butterfly vertebra and non segmented lateral hemivertebra at D10 to D12 vertebrae. On Computed Tomography (CT) imaging these anomalies become well evident while the patient presented with no neurological manifestations or abnormalities. This is a rarely reported scenario in literature where no neurological symptoms are seen in a case of vertebral duplication.
