Case Study
The defects of the neural tube represent the greater group of malformations of central nervous system (SNC) caused by anomalies in the closing, whose etiologic is been from the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. One of the main ones that we can find is the bifid thorn that includes understands meningocele, myelomeningocele, and anencephaly. She is one of the most common anomalies; all is characterized by alterations that affect the neural weave, meninges and soft bone or weaves that are on them. We presented displayed a case of a bony description of a product of between 37 and 38 weeks of gestational age (SDG) by somatometry (chimney, radius, femur, tibia), which presents displays the own alterations of this suffering.

    Background: The prevention of neural tube defects (NTDs) is now an issue of major public health concern. Myelomeningocele, the most common NTD, often results in severe disabilities and may be life threatening. In Africa, there is little awareness of the NTDs, and most African countries lag...

    Introduction: Myelomeningocele is one of the major congenital malformations involving the central nervous system. It is caused by a disruption of the neural tube closure, which is completed at 3-4 weeks of gestation. Discussion: Multidisciplinary approach is necessary to treat and support this...

    High prevalences of anencephaly and neural tube defects (NTDs) have recently been recorded for several Texas counties bordering Mexico. In addition, a few investigators have reported Hispanics to be at elevated risk for NTDs (anencephaly and spina bifida). Factors contributing to this risk have...
