Tethered cord syndrome is one of the spinal dysraphism with low-lying conus medullaris frequently associated with spinal lipoma, diastematomyelia and thick filum. The clinical manifestation is variable from no overt symptoms for a long time to back pain, scoliosis, progressive neurological deficit of legs and incontinence. Therefore the diagnosis requires a strong clinical suspicion and aggressive investigation. We experienced a case of 1 day-old male infant who was presented with small soft mass on sacral area. Spinal ultrasonography and spine MRI revealed tethered cord associated with intradural lipoma. We reported a case of tethered cord syndrome with brief review of literatures. Key Words
