Incidental finding of diastematomyelia. MRI done for radicular pain.
Diastematomyelia (also known as a split cord malformation) refers to a type of spinal dysraphism (spina bifida occulta) when there is a longitudinal split in the spinal cord. Although traditionally it has been distinguished from diplomyelia (in which the cord is duplicated rather than split) the term split cord malformation (SCM) is advocated to encompass both conditions.
