Scope note: Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)
Annotation: do not confuse entry term SPINAL CORD MYELODYSPLASIA with MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES, a defect of bone marrow formation
