Akijin In our service, the protocol to neonates with high risk of occult spinal dysraphism with cutaneous stigma is accomplishment of spinal ultrasound using the linear transductor. The incidence of these defects shows significant geographical variation from 0. The protocol to neonates with high risk of occult spinal dysraphism has demonstrated good results; however, the physicians should be aware of neonates with cutaneous stigma because of high incidence of occult spinal dysraphism. The ultrasonographic findings from the spine were 1 discontinuity of the posterior bone layers in the L5 and S1 projections, with an intracanal solid formation presenting undefined margins and a heterogenous hyperrefringent interior, adhering to the distal segment of the medullary cone; 2 a medullary cone extending beyond the L3 body Figure 2. The following abnormalities can be included as forms of occult spinal dysraphism: The incomplete ossification of the posterior elements of the more caudal vertebrae in children of up to five or six months of age provides a good acoustic window for viewing the content of the vertebral canal and the bone structures [5].

Akijin In our service, the protocol to neonates with high risk of occult spinal dysraphism with cutaneous stigma is accomplishment of spinal ultrasound using the linear transductor. The incidence of these defects shows significant geographical variation from 0. The protocol to neonates with high risk of occult spinal dysraphism has demonstrated good results; however, the physicians should be aware of neonates with cutaneous stigma because of high incidence of occult spinal dysraphism.

The ultrasonographic findings from the spine were 1 discontinuity of the posterior bone layers in the L5 and S1 projections, with an intracanal solid formation presenting undefined margins and a heterogenous hyperrefringent interior, adhering to the distal segment of the medullary cone; 2 a medullary cone extending beyond the L3 body Figure 2.

The following abnormalities can be included as forms of occult spinal dysraphism: The incomplete ossification of the posterior elements of the more caudal vertebrae in children of up to five or six months of age provides a good acoustic window for viewing the content of the vertebral canal and the bone structures [5].

It is therefore more difficult to diagnose on antenatal ultrasonography. Echography is considered to be an effective low-cost noninvasivemethod and plays a critical role in diagnosing or ruling out occult spinal dysraphism at birth [2]. Sweeps in longitudinal and transverse planes were performed, with the aims of making a detailed assessment of the contiguity of the anatomical features with themedullary canal: The magnetic resonance findings were compatible with lipomyelomeningocele, and the neonate was referred to a tertiary-level pediatric neurosurgery service.

Ultrasonography is a fast, safe, noninvasive, and low-cost method, and it also presents good correspondence with the findings from magnetic resonance imaging. Its prevalence is greater among females and in poor people [2]. Ultrassonografia Geral Relato de Caso: This case was different from our protocol because the neonate was referenced to realize the transfontanellar ultrasound, and only after the observation of cutaneous stigma, the protocol of occult spinal dysrapism was performed.

Early diagnosis of spinal dysraphism is very important in order to minimize the sequelae that occur in patients who are not diagnosed before the growth spurt, who may suffer neural disorders due to medullary ischemia. Basedon thephysicalfindings, cases of spinal dysraphism can be grouped into two categories: Of these, only 5.

The diagnostic hypothesis was that a defect of the medullary canal was present pediatriica the region of the cutaneous stigma, with anchored spinal cord and an intracanal solid medullary formation with apparent peripheral invasion that was continuous with the spinal cord, suggestive of a lipoma. A neurological examination done earlier had not shown any abnormalities.

Cases of multiple stigmas comprise another group at risk [7]. The echographic findings suggestive of occult spinal dysraphism include a low position for pedkatrica medullary cone, bulbous medullary cone, thick filum terminale, dorsal attachment of the spinal cord, and loss of cardiorespiratory pulsatory movement of the spinal cord [8].

In summary, we have presented a case of a neonate with occult spinal dysraphism associated with cutaneous stigmas. This produced the following findings: R e pela S. Here, we present a case of a five-day-old neonate with occult dysraphism of lipomyelomeningocele type who presented cutaneous stigmas, and we demonstrate the main ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance findings from the spine.

A five-day-old white female neonate was sent to our service for transfontanellar ultrasonography to be performed, because of the presence of cutaneous stigmas in the lumbar region. Because of the possibility of irreversible sequelae through delayed diagnosis, a screening method for patients at high risk of occult spinal dysraphism becomes necessary [7].

However, detecting this condition in neonates is difficult since the neurological signs in these patients are not apparent. Magnetic resonance imaging is another diagnostic imaging method for evaluating cases of occult spinal dysraphism. In our case, the neonate presented exophytic skin lesions in the lumbar region and hands postaxial polydactyly.

In T1 and T2 views, this technology enables detailed evaluation of the skin, medullary, canal and intervertebral discs, thus making adequate planning for corrective surgery possible [6].

The magnetic resonance imaging has the capacity to identify the type and the level of lesion. We believe that ultrasonography should be performed on patients who are at high risk of occult spinal dysraphism, such as those presenting cutaneous stigmas, congenital abnormalities, or neurological alterations, as ameans of early diagnosis, thereby avoiding neuropsychomotor sequelae later on.

Ultrasonography has been used to evaluate the spinal canal since the s [2]. In this abnormality, the spinal cord is lowand anchored by the lipoma [2].

In three prospective studies in the literature, the highest incidence reported, in an evaluated population of 2, patients, was 7. Occult spinal dysraphism is defined as a group of dysraphic conditions present below an intact cover of dermis and epidermis. Some stigmas have been proven to present greater pediatrics of occult spinal dysraphism, such as deep or atypical sacrococcygeal dimples, hemangiomas, cutaneous aplasia, subcutaneous masses, and exophytic skin lesions such as tails and hair tufts.

Early diagnosing of occult spinal dysraphism prevents progressive neurological dysfunction. Atendimento ao Aluno 11 In order to obtain additional information to elucidate the diagnosis, magnetic resonance imaging was performed on the spine.

Atendimento ao Aluno 11 Agendamento de exames 11 This feature was approximately 2 cm in length andwas associated with violaceous cutaneousmaculae Figures 1 a and 1 b and polydactyly on the hands and feet Figures 1 c and 1 d. Theultrasound has great capacity to assess the vertebral canal. High-resolution ultrasonography using a linear transducer made it possible to identify and characterize the lesion, and magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the type of lesion lipomyelomeningocele and enabled adequate surgical planning.

CASE REPORT A ecoggrafia white female neonate was sent to our service for transfontanellar ultrasonography to be performed, because of the presence of cutaneous stigmas in the lumbar region. Lipomyelomeningocele is a form of spinal dysraphism in which the lediatrica invades the dural sac, and it may segel the nerve roots and medullary cone [1].

A ultrassonografia tem sido utilizada para avaliar o canal medular desde [2]. Images in B and color Doppler modes were obtained. The neonate underwent corrective surgery and, over a six-month followup, presented normal neuropsychomotor development. TOP Related Posts.
