Spontaneous in Utero Rupture of Fetal Meningomyelocele Sac: A Case Report
Keywords:Meningomyelocele, Complications Pregnancy
Route of delivery in cases of intact fetal meningomyelocele is controversial. Currently, many obstetricians are concerned about rupture of the meningomyelocele during vaginal delivery and elect to perform caesarean section. We present a case of meningomyelocele in which the sac was spontaneously ruptured two days prior to cesarean section, suggesting that in some cases vaginal delivery may not be responsible for rupture of the sac.
