Abstract
Thoracic meningocele and myelomeningocele are rare neural tube defects unlike lumbosacral neural tube defects; sometimes there no neurologic deficits and thus the subtle features of cervical cord tethering may be overlooked on imaging. The presence of neural tube defects at multiple (two or more) sites along the vertebral axis is a very rare event occurring in less than 1% of cases. Up to our best knowledge less than 10 cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of multiple neural tube defects (thoracic and lumber) in same patient with no any neurological deficit found.

Key words: Meningocele, myelomeningocele, neural tube defects.
