Annotation
do not confuse entry term SPINAL CORD MYELODYSPLASIA with MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES, a defect of bone marrow formation
Scope Note
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)
