Abstract

We report on a 5-year-old boy presenting with tethered cord, diastometamyelia, spinal dysraphism, terminal lipoma, spinal epidermoid, and dermal sinus tract with CT, conventional MRI, and diffusion-weighted MRI findings. To the best of our knowledge, our case has the property to be the first case in the literature showing the association of these pathologies all together.
