PMID:  11196754     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The coexistence of two distinct meningoceles of the spine is a very unusual event. We report a three-day-old boy with double meningoceles at the thoracic and lumbar levels. The connection between the stalk of the thoracic meningocele and the spinal cord, as seen on magnetic resonance imaging, showed a neurological involvement in this lesion. Our case is only the third without association of congenital anomalies or neurofibromatosis to be reported to date.
