A human tail or a caudal appendage is a rare condition with preconceived notions and stigmata. They could be either true tails or DQpseudotailsDQ based on their embryology. Clinically, they are considered as a marker of occult spinal dysraphism. We report two such cases with tethering of cord, one of which was associated with a lipomeningomyelocele. These patients are in need of meticulous evaluation and appropriate management.
