Caudal regression syndrome is a congenital syndrome that presents with pathology of spinal tract migration during the embryologic period. In this paper, we report a 16–year-old caudal regression syndrome case. This syndrome is very rare, especially after the childhood period. In this patient, caudal regression syndrome was demonstrated by imaging techniques. The patient was planned to be followed without operation. Treatment methods and the follow- up period in caudal regression syndrome are discussed.
