Abstract

Congenital Dermal Sinus tracts (CDS) are most commonly found over the midline and may or may not communicate with the central nervous system. We present a 6-year-old girl with a pit in the right posterior lumbar region noted since birth without any discharge. This location is quite unusual, and our report highlights the variability of congenital dermal sinus tract presentation and raises awareness that, the lesions prone to be having a connection with the central nervous system can present quite laterally.

Keywords:

Spinal dermal sinus tracts; Spinal dysraphism; Dermal sinus
