And, I can assure you that it is not a mild form of spina bifida, because I also have a lovely, simian-looking patch of hair at the base of my spine, right above my butt. I was born with this hair, and when I was little, I was x-rayed to find out if it was the mild form of spina bifida. It was not. Just the hair, no sign of any internal malformation.
