Diplomyelia

Last revised by Dr Henry Knipe on 16 Sep 2021

Diplomyelia is a rare spinal cord malformation in which the cord is duplicated. It should be distinguished from diastematomyelia in which a single cord is split. Having said that it has been proposed that the term be abandoned in favor of split cord malformation, which encompasses both diastematomyelia and diplomyelia.
