PMID:  7628175     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Human tails have been described intermittently in the literature, typically as isolated cases with varying forms of malformation. Attempts have been made to differentiate "true" tails from "tail-like" appearances. Unless identified, underlying occult spinal disorders, mass effect, and/or tethering of the spinal cord may lead to progressive neurologic damage. We report three patients with "tails" and the associated spinal anomalies.
