Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The usual clinical presentations of tethered cord syndrome include pain in the lumbosacral region, gait difficulty, weakness, and bladder abnormalities. We describe an unusual presentation of tethered cord - a nonhealing gluteal ulcer in an anesthetic cutaneous territory supplied by the S2-4 segments. Unexplained cutaneous lesions may be the presenting sign of an underlying neurological condition.
