Occult spi­nal dys­raph­ism can ­lead to irre­ver­sible neu­ro­log­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions, ear­ly diag­no­sis and treat­ment are nec­es­sary. It can be sus­pect­ed ­from the pres­ence of any cuta­ne­ous abnor­mal­ity. We ­report a ­case ­with ­bony ­spur for­ma­tion on the top of the ­5th lum­bar ver­te­bra spi­nose pro­cess cov­ered ­with ­skin mim­ick­ing a menin­go­cel sac. By the ­help of ­this ­bony ­spur teth­ered ­cord ­could be diag­nosed ­before any neu­ro­log­i­cal def­i­cit.
