Abstract

A seven-month-old female dog weighing 7 kg, showed fecal/urinary incontinence and paralysis of hindquarters, and spina bifida was revealed by plain radiography. There was no differece in the silhouette of spinal cord between myelography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As syringomyelia was shown by MRI, the case was diagnosed as spina bifida cystica (opened myelomeningocele) complicated with syringomyelia.
