Delayed diagnosis of voiding dysfunction: occult spinal dysraphism.

Abstract

The recognition of spinal dysraphism as a potential cause of voiding dysfunction is of the utmost importance if appropriate treatment and followup are to be initiated. We present 2 women with prolonged voiding dysfunction who had spinal dysraphism, intradural lipoma and related urodynamic abnormalities. The importance of initial symptom recognition, physical examination, urodynamic evaluation, appropriate treatment and periodic re-examination to detect progressive neurological impairment is emphasized.
