We present a case of a lipomeningocele in a newborn. Prenatal sonography revealed dysraphia and a 3.8 x 4.3 cm, semisolid, echogenic mass that was continuous with the sacral area and bulged posteriorly under the skin. The mass was diagnosed after birth as a lipomeningocele based on the results of MRI. This diagnosis was confirmed histologically. (C) 2000 John Wiley and Sons, Inc.
