What is Caudal Regression Syndrome? (Definition)
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Caudal regression syndrome is a disorder or condition which impairs the development of the lower (caudal) half of the body. Affected areas can include the lower back and limbs, the genitourinary tract, and the gastrointestinal tract. The specific features and severity of the disorder vary among affected people. In people with caudal regression syndrome, bones of the lower spine may be abnormally shaped or missing, and the corresponding sections of the spinal cord can also be abnormal or missing. Affected people can have scoliosis or other abnormalities of the spine. Spinal abnormalities may affect the chest, which can lead to breathing problems.
