Spina bifida is a problem that impacts the spine and is usually evident at birth. Spina bifida can happen anywhere along the spinal column if the neural tube does not close completely. Spina bifida may cause physical and intellectual specials needs that range from mild to extreme. The 3 most common types of spina bifida are: Myelomeningocele When people chat about spina bifida, usually they are referring to myelomeningocele. This type of spina bifida can cause small handicaps. Spina bifida can be detected while pregnant or after the infant is born. An AFP test may be part of a test called the triple display that tries to find neural tube issues and other issues. As a result, when the spinal column forms, the bones of the spine do not close totally around the developing nerves of the spinal cord. Since spina bifida is triggered by irregularities of the neural tube, it is classified as a neural tube issue. Children birthed with spina bifida commonly have a fluid-filled sac on their back that is covered by skin, called a meningocele. With surgical treatment and other forms of therapy, many people with spina bifida live into adulthood. In a milder type of the problem, called spina bifida occulta, the bones of the spine are abnormally formed, but the nerves of the spinal cord usually develop normally. Spina bifida occulta frequently causes no illness, although rarely it can cause back pain or changes in bladder function. Most individuals with spina bifida have the ability to have surgical treatment to close the opening in the back. Most people with spina bifida have normal intelligence, however some have learning difficulties.
