The progressive course of spinal dysraphism has not yet been understood. Adult patients with spinal dysraphisms may give some evidences about the clinical progression of the malformations. In the present study we discussed a 48 years old patient with meningocele who has developed adult onset of impairment of sacral functions. The radiological, electrophysiological and urodynamic evaluations and pathophysiology of the adult onset of sypmtoms are also discussed.
