Abstract

Tethered cord syndrome is a form of spinal dysraphism, with a low-lying conus frequently associated with an intraspinal lipoma, diastematomyelia or fibrous band. The clinical manifestations include spine abnormalities, such as spina bifida, or various neurological symptoms involving the lower extremities and sphincters. Herein, our experience of a 42-year-old female tethered cord syndrome patient, with deficit, paresthesia and incontinence following spinal anesthesia for anti-incontinence surgery, is reported with a brief review of literature.
