FUNAYAMA, Carolina A. R. et al. Recurrent meningitis in a case of congenital anterior sacral meningocele and agenesis of sacral and coccygeal vertebrae. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1995, vol.53, n.4, pp.799-801. ISSN 0004-282X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1995000500016.

A rare case of recurrent meningitis due to congenital anterior sacral meningocele and agenesis of the sacral and coccygeal vertebrae is described. An autosomal dominant inheritance is demonstrated for lower cord malformation, and environmental factors (chromic acid or fumes) are discussed.

Keywords : recurrent meningitis; neural tube defects; inherited diseases.
