What is Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida is the most common type of developmental defect that causes disabilities and is a health condition that is present at birth. Spina Bifida is a Latin term that literally means “open spine”.

Children born with Spina Bifida have a serious birth abnormality in which there is an incomplete fusion of the vertebral arches in the lumbar region, meaning the skin covering the spinal cord does not close completely.
