NIH Rare Diseases:42 Myelomeningocele is the most severe form of spina bifida. it happens when parts of the spinal cord and nerves come through the open part of the spine. it causes nerve damage and other disabilities. seventy to ninety percent of children with this condition also have too much fluid on their brains (hydrocephalus). this happens because fluid that protects the brain and spinal cord is unable to drain like it should. the fluid builds up, causing pressure and swelling. without treatment, a person’s head grows too big, and they may have brain damage. other disorders of the spinal cord may be seen, including syringomyelia and hip dislocation. the cause of myelomeningocele is unknown. however, low levels of folic acid in a woman's body before and during early pregnancy is thought to play a part in this type of birth defect. last updated: 1/11/2013

MalaCards: Myelomeningocele, also known as meningomyelocele, is related to spina bifida and neural tube defects. An important gene associated with Myelomeningocele is CBS (cystathionine-beta-synthase), and among its related pathways are Trans-sulfuration pathway and Cysteine and methionine metabolism. The compounds dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate and tamoxifen have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and limbs/digits/tail.

CDC:3 Spina bifida is a major birth defect of a person’s spine. With good quality medical care people with spina bifida can reach their full potential. If you have spina bifida, or know someone who does, it’s important to get the facts so that you can make the best possible health care choices.
