  Title Spinal dysraphism and cavovarus foot deformity: A case report
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1992 Jun;36(2):91-95
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Neurological impairment secondary to spinal dysraphism most commonly presents as unilateral cavovarus foot in children. The deformity usually develops in the growing child around the age of five or six. The presence of a cavovarus foot of unknown origin in a child should lead to a complete neurological examination, including an assessment of the spine for spinal dysraphism. The early recognition of pathology may prevent severe neurological sequelae. A case of lipomyelomeningocele is presented to illustrate that cord damage in children with spinal dysraphism can present initially as a cavovarus foot.
