Abstract

Introduction Sacral agenesis is a congenital condition associated with multiple orthopedic, spinal, abdominal and thoracic organ deformities. Meningocele is commonly found among patients with sacral agenesis. Description We present the first case in the literature describing a delayed presentation of terminal (posterior) meningocele in an adult patient born with sacral agenesis. Conclusion Surgical repair was performed and is the best treatment option for significantly large lesions, with postoperative CSF leak being the main complication.
