Glossary for Meningocele

  • 3q deletion: A rare chromosomal disorder where part of the long arm (q) of chromosome 3 is deleted resulting in various abnormalities which are determined by the size of the deleted portion.
  • Acromelic frontonasal dysplasia: A very rare genetic malformation syndrome characterized by developmental abnormalities of the face and brain.
  • Al Awadi syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized primarily by severe malformations involving the limbs and pelvis.
  • Al Awadi-Raas-Rothschild syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized primarily by severe malformations involving the limbs and pelvis. The exact type and severity of symptoms is variable. Most cases appear to occur in cases where the parents were related.
  • Anencephaly: A birth defect where most or all of the brain is missing - most die before birth. Usually the associated portions of skull and other tissue are also missing.
  • Back conditions: A group of conditions that affect the back
  • Bladder symptoms: Symptoms related to the bladder and urination.
  • Brain conditions: Medical conditions that affect the brain
  • Cerebrorenodigital syndrome: A rare group of syndromes characterized mainly by brain, kidney, finger and toe abnormalities.
  • Congenital conditions: Any condition that you are born with such as birth defects or genetic diseases.
  • Congenital conditions -- physical defects: Congenital (birth) defects causing a physical structure defect (rather than metabolic).
  • Digestive symptoms: Any symptoms affecting the digestive tract.
  • Head Conditions: Conditions that affect the head
  • Hydrocephalus: A rare condition where the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid is impaired by dilated brain ventricles which causes the fluid to accumulate in the skull and hence result in increased brain pressure.
  • Keutel syndrome 2: A rare inherited syndrome characterized mainly meningocele, various skeletal abnormalities and retarded motor and mental development.
  • Mefloquine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Mefenamic Acid during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Meningomyelocele: A very rare developmental disorder where a part of the membrane that covers the spinal cord and part of the spinal cord itself protrudes through an abnormal opening in the bones of the spinal column. The condition may be asymptomatic or if the defect is large, severe neurological abnormalities may result.
  • Midline field defects: Congenital problems that occur along the vertical axis of the body. Defects can involve the brain, spine, heart, genitals and midline of the head and face.
  • Nervous system conditions: Diseases affecting the nerves and the nervous system.
  • Neural tube defect, folate-sensitive: Neural tube defects caused by abnormal folate or homocysteine metabolism. Neural tube defects are brain or spine defects such as an opening in the spinal cord through which the spinal cord protrudes.
  • No symptoms: The absence of noticable symptoms.
  • Omphalocele -- exstrophy -- imperforate anus: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by the absence of an anal opening, spine defects and omphalocele (abdominal organ protruding from the belly button).
  • Osteosclerosis, abnormalities of nervous system and meninges: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by increased bone density and nervous system abnormalities.
  • Quinidine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Quinidine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Spina bifida: A birth defect where the spinal vertebrae do not completely enclose the spinal cord often resulting in various degrees of nerve damage.
  • Spinal Cord Disorders: Any condition that affects the spinal cord
  • Spinal conditions: Any condition that affects the spine
  • Tacrolimus -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Tacrolimus during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Thompson-Baraitser syndrome: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by liver fibrosis, kidney cysts and mental retardation.
  • Thoraco abdominal enteric duplication: A very rare syndrome characterized by chest and abdominal abnormalities as well as intestinal duplication.
