Abstract

25-year-old lady a mother of two kids diagnosed to have a congenital huge meningocele and underwent successful surgery of excision and repair. She is presented with a long history since birth of back swelling at the lumbosacral area without any associated significant neurological symptoms. The wondering was how she is passed all this age period without complaining or seeking medical advice, and the answer was because of her mother and her concept about such anomaly and she was constantly preventing her from any medical advice regarding this back swelling and what helped in that the patient had no any symptoms developed rather than the swelling itself. We presenting this case as a delayed presentation of meningocele in adult which is considered as rare event mentioned in the literature and the underlying cause behind that is revealed. The message to deliver here is that patients traditions and believes toward certain diseases especially the congenital may affect their interest in seeking medical advice especially with the disease of subtle natural history. Regardless the time of presentation; such cases should undergo formal assessment and management plan as used.
