Term Detail
MP term:spina bifida occulta
Synonym: closed spinal bifida
Synonym: cryptomerorrhachischis
Synonym: hidden spina bifida
Synonym: occult spina bifida
MP id: MP:0005297
Definition: defective closure of the laminae of the vertebral column in the lumbosacral region without hernial protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges; the mildest, most common and often asymptomatic form of spina bifida, identified externally by a skin depression or dimple, dark tufts of hair, telangiectasis, or soft subcutaneous lipomas at the site of defect
