    Background: The black-tufted ear marmoset, Callithrix penicillata, is an endemic primate from Brazil, distributed among Cerrado and Atlantic Forest vegetation. Most of the congenital malformations from the spinal cord arise from failures in the neural tube closure. Those failures result in an...
