Abstract

Objective: The role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting occult spinal dysraphism (OSD) in children with voiding dysfunction and a normal neurological examination is still under debate. The aim of this study was to assess the correlation of sacral skin lesions with OSD detected on MRI, in a population of children with resistant lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
