Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine in 45 patients with myelomeningocele revealed hydrosyringomyelia in 24 and diastematomyelia in two. No patient at initial imaging manifested symptoms referable to hydrosyringomyelia; both patients with diastematomyelia had flaccid lower extremities. One patient developed an upper extremity monoparesis which resolved with syringo-peritoneal shunt placement; no other patient manifested symptoms or required surgery. Ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunction produced reversible distention of the syrinx in another patient who remained asymptomatic.
