Caudal Regre1ssion Syndrome - A Case Report

Kavyashree A N, Prashanth H V, Shilpa shree.

Abstract
Caudal regression is rare syndromes which has a spectrum of congenital malformations ranging from simple anal atresia to absence of sacral, lumbar and possibly lower thoracic vertebrae, to the most severe form which is known as sirenomelia. Maternal diabetes, genetic predisposition and vascular hypo perfusion have been suggested as possible causative factors. We report a case of caudal regression syndrome diagnosed in utero at 15 weeks’ of gestation. Prenatal ultrasound examination revealed kyphosis at thoracolumbar junction and both iliac bones. Sacrum not visualized. Postpartum radiological examination showed kyphosis in the thoracolumbar region due to hemivertebra and multiple curved ribs predominantly right side causing thoracic deformity and sacrum was absent.
Distal vertebral anomalies and fetal spine anatomy may be seen by obstetric ultrasonography, and in the intrauterine period, amniofusion may be important especially in cases associated with oligohydramnios. The superiority of lumbosacral MRI is generally accepted today.

Key words: caudal regression syndrome, Lumbosacral dysgenesis
