Imaging diagnosis-ultrasonographic diagnosis of diplomyelia disrfaia a calf. The protocol to neonates with high risk of occult spinal dysraphism has demonstrated good results; however, the physicians should be aware of neonates with cutaneous stigma because of high incidence of occult spinal dysraphism.

Follow up telephonic conversations over the next 3 months revealed that the owner did not notice additional neurologic signs in the dog. The ultrasonographic findings from the spine were 1 discontinuity of the posterior bone layers in the L5 and S1 projections, with an intracanal solid formation presenting undefined margins and a heterogenous hyperrefringent interior, adhering to the distal segment of the medullary cone; 2 a medullary cone extending beyond the L3 body Figure 2.
