Although meningoceles are known to be associated with split cord malformations, the association of dextrocardia is extremely rare. The authors report a case of a 15 day male child who had an atretic meningocele in the lumbosacral region along with dextrocardia and a split cord malformation with a posterior spur. This importance of preoperative MRI for proper management of such patients is highlighted in this report.
