We report a rare cause of paraparesis in a 2-year-old girl. Along with lower limb weakness, she presented with a neurogenic bladder and lower limb deformities. Her magnetic resonance imaging showed multiple dorsolumbar segmentation defects and a dysgenetic spinal cord segment between T10 and S1. A thin septum connected the lower end of the normal cord to a bulky conus at S1-2. These features were suggestive of type 1 segmental spinal dysgenesis. The findings were confirmed at surgery, and the child was referred for supportive care.
