mild midline abnormalities?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Dr. Sears,

 

I have 21 month old monozygotic twin boys.  They both had tongue tie, and one was also born with aposthia and a sacral dimple which my doctor is calling spina bifida occulta.  We have not yet explored the sacral dimple with a scan, and are not sure how far in it goes.  My question is whether these abnormalities might indicate other midline problems.  Is there anything else I should have checked out?  I've also noticed, though I forgot to bring it up at his last check-up) that the right side of his rib cage sticks out a bit more than the left.

 

Although is is a bit smaller than his twin (50th percentile vs 10th percentile) he is bright, active, and is hitting all his milestones. 

 

Many thanks in advance, 

 

Carolyn

This is a bit too complicated for me to advise you on. I'll have to leave this between you and your doctor. I don't want to give you some wrong information regarding such a complex issue.
