Abstract


Caudal regression syndrome is a congenital disease that affects the development of distal spinal segments and is reflected by abnormalities in the pelvis and genitourinary and gastrointestinal systems along with severe deformities in the extremities and spinal problems. Our goal was to report the computed tomography (CT) findings of a case of megacolon associated with caudal regression syndrome (CRS) that presented with constipation that had lasted for approximately 25 days.
