Caudal regression is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by caudal vertebral agenesis, most often associated with spinal cord malformations and several other congenital anomalies, especially of the genitourinary and gastrointestinal systems. The cause remains unidentified. Imaging techniques allows for an early diagnosis and prognosis of this condition, for a better management. A 4 months-old boy, with weakness and amyotrophy in the lower limbs, associated to bilateral congenital talipes equinus varus, was brought for further management.
