Resumo

SARMAST, A H et al. Human born with a tail: A case report. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.1, pp. 38-39. ISSN 1994-3032.

CONTEXT: The dorsal cutaneous appendage, or so-called human tail, is often considered to be a cutaneous marker of underlying occult spinal dysraphism. Human tails have always elicited curiosity. A unique case of human dysraphism is described. CASE REPORT: An interesting case of a child with a tail-like caudal appendage that had been present since birth is reported. Surgical excision of a pseudo-tail was done together with repair of a meningocele. CONCLUSION: Before any form of treatment for a caudal appendage is undertaken, the patient must be evaluated carefully in case it coexists with a lesion of the intraspinal component.
