MRI demonstrates a split cord with a fibrous/bony bar passing obliquely from front to back through the defect. Features are characteristic of diastematomyelia of the cervical cord.
This patient has had numerous operations on their cervical spine. Some of the fusion may, therefore, be postoperative, although the notes refer to Klippel Fiel syndrome, thus some or all are presumably congenital.
