Adult presentation in diastematomyelia is very rare. The common location is from first to third lumbar vertebrae. Lumbosacral adult diastematomyelia is even rarer. A 42 years male with lumbosacral diastematomyelia is described. Combined myelographic-CT scan study demonstrated lumbar canal stenosis and bony spur attached to vertebral bodies of the fifth lumbar and first sacral vertebra. Surgery with decompression of neural elements and removal of bony spur resulted in complete relief of symptoms. Detailed case representation and a review of 74 cases of adult diastematomyelia is reported.
