SAMPAIO, Pedro M.  and  PELIZZARO, Bruno. Caudal spinal cord disraphism: intra-sacral forms. Report of 4 cases. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1975, vol.33, n.1, pp.56-60. ISSN 0004-282X.

The mean theories of the sacral spinal dysraphisms are reviwed and 4 cases of "meningeal intrasacral diverticulum" are reported. The authors prefer this term to the more common "intrasacral occult meningocele". The proeminent symptom in their cases was late vesical incontinence, which disappeared after surgery. In the pertinent litterature 24 similar cases were described till now.
