This piece is intended to teach medical students the anatomical differences between a normal spinal cord, and one that has been “tethered” by Spina Bifida Occulta or a Myelomeningocele. As a child grows, a tethered spinal cord stretches and deforms, and the body develops neurological deficits in the lower limbs. This illustration accompanies a clinical vignette in UWorld’s Step 2 question bank.
