We present the case of a 35-year-old woman with a large anterior sacral meningocele who had been unable to conceive.

Result and Discussion

Following neurosurgical consultation, she underwent repair of her meningocele which resulted in complete resolution of her meningocele and 1 year later, she delivered her first child.


This case demonstrates that following surgical treatment, female patients with anterior sacral meningoceles may be able to conceive and bear children.
