Abstract

Anterior sacral meningoceles are rare. This report describes familial anterior sacral meningoceles in a father and daughter who underwent magnetic resonance imaging as part of the preoperative evaluation. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a pelvic teratoma in the daughter and confirmed the absence of abnormal tissue in the father--findings not clearly provided by ultrasound studies, myelography, or contrast-enhanced computerized tomography. It is believed that MR imaging is the most useful preoperative diagnostic technique available in establishing a treatment plan for anterior sacral meningocele.
