Re: Spina bifida occulta

My dd has the birthmark, dimple, and hair. She had an ultrasound when she was born and they found that the spinal cord was closed, so no Spina Bifida. When we switched ped's, she was referred to a pediatric neurologist, who checked her report from the U/S and said he was satisfied that she was clear. She also walks normally and PL'd early. I worry, because it just takes one idiot not doing their job right for a LOT to change, ya know?

Did they do an mri or anything? I was told after a few months old an U/S isn't reliable and that's the only way to tell.

Good luck with your DD. I hope everything continues normally for her
