Abstract

Congenital malformations encompass a diverse group of disorders present at birth as result of genetic abnormalities, infection, errors of morphogenesis, or abnormalities in the intrauterine environment. Congenital disorders affecting the brain and spinal cord are often diagnosed before delivery with the use of prenatal ultrasonography and maternal serum screening. Over the past several decades there have been major advances in the understanding and management of these conditions. This article focuses on the most common spinal congenital malformations.
