Spina Bifida

Spina bifida refers to a neural tube defect characterized by the poor development of spinal cord, and/or meninges.140,000 NTD cases arise per year globally. Occulta, closed neural tube defects, meningocele, and myelomeningocele are the types of Spina bifida. Occulta is the mildest and the most common. The exact cause of spina bifida remains a mystery. Research indicates that insufficient intake of folic acid-a common B vitamin-in the mother's diet is the main factor in spina bifida. Treatment of this defect depends on the type as well as severity of the disorder. Children with mild case of spina bifida needs no treatment; however some may require surgery as they grow.
