Journal of Pediatric Nephrology,

The fixing of the spinal cord, regardless of the underlying cause of the fixation, is called a tethered cord. Tethered cord syndrome is a group of diseases that develops as a result of the regression of the spinal cord due to congenital or acquired causes and is characterized by evaluative neurologic losses. In stretched tethered cord syndrome which is observed during childhood usually manifested by skin symptoms, motor losses, urologic symptoms, and evaluative spinal cord deformations such as scoliosis are more frequently observed while perinea and primal pain, urologic symptoms, and motor losses are more frequent in adults. Tethered cord complicating a neurogenic bladder in childhood is a rare disease. So, this case report is presented.Keywords: Tethered cord; Child; Chronic Kidney Disease; Neurogenic Bladder.
