Spina Bifida Meningocele

Spina Bifida Meningocele is the least common form, the outer part of some of the vertebrae are split and the meninges are damaged and pushed out through the opening, appearing as a sac or cyst, which contains both the meninges and cerebrospinal fluid. The nerves are not usually badly damaged and are able to function, therefore there is often little disability present. There are usually no negative long-term effects, although problems have been known to arise.
