In brief: No cure/manage

These are defects in the nervous system that date back to early weeks of fetal development.
They can vary is size and distortion of spinal elements.They can be open to the air or under a fragile membrane. There is no cure. Initial management focuses on closing over the defect to prevent infection and managing associated problems like hydrocephalus.Specialty care for their lifetime is necessary.
