Sacral Dimple related to Dev. Delayed?
Mon, 07-14-2008 - 12:39pm

Hello! My children ages 3 1/2 and 14 month old are developmentally delayed. They are getting speech, physical, occuation, and special ed. therapy. I just learned that the indentation on their lower back near the rectum is called a Sacral Dimple and can be related to other neurological problems and rarely spina bifida. I am wondering you can give me more information about the sacral dimple and if it causes developmental delays.

Thank you,
