However, prolonged survival is common with the less severe forms of holoprosencephaly. 351,365,376,386 The degree of failure of cerebral cleavage correlates with the cognitive deficits, hypothalamic cleavage with the endocrinopathies, and basal ganglia and thalamic cleavage with dystonia and impaired motor function. 340,351,365,371,372,376-388 Ultrasound scan provides useful information in the neonatal period regarding the nature and extent of the maldevelopment (Fig. 1-18). MRI is most valuable (Fig.

In some cases, the spinal cord is separated by a bony, cartilaginous, or fibrous septum protruding from the dorsal surface of the vertebral body, whereas in other cases no septum is present (the term diplomyelia is sometimes used for the latter cases). Because many types of duplication of the developing caudal neural tube may occur during canalization, it is postulated that persistence of these tubes could result in diastematomyelia. The duplications may occur because of splitting of the notochord with impaired induction of both the neural tube and the vertebrae.

Moreover, these structures frequently are ‘‘tethered’’ or fixed at their caudal end by fibrous bands, lipoma, extension of dermal sinus, or related lesions. , because of its tethered caudal end, the cord sustains a traction injury caused by the differential growth of the vertebral column and the neural tissue). 301 Thus, distinct disturbances observed intraoperatively improved markedly on release of the tethered cord. With the occult dysraphic states, as noted earlier, the neural lesion is often rather subtle, and the major overt abnormality involves mesodermally derived structures (especially the vertebrae), the overlying dermal structures, or both.
