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.

Interesting thread!
I had no idea I would get so many replies when I started it, lol! It relieves my mind greatly, however.

Henry also has a patch of hair right above his "crack"...but he was born with hairy arms and a hairy back, too, and just this patch has lasted so far, so I don't know if it's related to the hole by his tailbone or not. I just hate to hear the words "spina bifida," you know?

Thanks for sharing, everyone. I will definitely ask his doctor about it, and do a bit more research, but it's good to know it's not totally bizarre.

sorry nak and lefty typing

yea, ds has a sacral dimple. we got a sonogram when he was a few weeks old to rule out underlying problems. apparently a few of my cousins have it too- never knew that until i told my mom ds had it! anyway it can be symptom of something else, or it could just be what it is- a dimple.
