INTRODUCTION: Multiple neural tube defects and pontine anomalies are relatively rare. Cases of split pons and double encephalocoeles in combination with other spinal anomalies are even rarer.
CASE REPORT: Here, we present a very rare case of split pons, twin encephalocoeles (one of which was atretic), lumbar dermal sinus tract, lumbosacral lipomeningomyelocele, thickened filum, and syringomyelia that was managed successfully at our institute.
CONCLUSION: Cases of split pons and double encephalocoeles in combination with other spinal anomalies are very rare, and to the best of author's knowledge, this is the first case report of these multiple anomalies in world literature.
