Spina bifida is a birth deformity that happens when the spine and spinal cord do not form properly. It is a kind of neural tube deformity. The neural tube is sort of a structure in an evolving embryo that ultimately becomes the baby's brain, spinal cord and the tissues that surround them.
Spina bifida is a serious birth defect that occurs when the tissue surrounding the developing spinal cord of a fetus does not close properly during the first month of pregnancy. It is part of a group of birth defects called neural tube defects, a disorder involving incomplete development of the brain, spinal cord, and/or their protective coverings.
Spina bifida might start from mild to severe, relying upon the type of deformity, size, location and complications. When required, early treatment for spina bifida involves surgery however such treatment does not always completely resolve the problem.
