Abstract

Diastomatomyelia with syringomyelia is a rare clinical condition where there is a duplication of spinal cord. We recently came across a child who had this anomaly. The case was successfully managed with an uneventful recovery. We describe this patient in detail in addition to reviewing the pertinent literature.
