ABSTRACT

Introduction: Spinal Congenital Dermal sinuses are a rare condition which they are classified as an uncommon form of spinal dysraphism. Case Presentation: We had a rare case of cervical dermal sinus presented with non-tender midline cervical dimple without co-existing anomaly, who was referred for cosmetic reasons. MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) showed a Dural sinus tract in the spinal canal of C2- 3, and a tract connecting it to the skin dimple. The spinal cord was thick and irregular with a small syrinx at this level. Also, spina bifida of C2-3 was noted. Conclusions: Dural sinus tract in the cervical area is a rare condition that presents with no symptoms in this case.

Keywords: Dermal sinus, cervical, spina bifida
