The case of sacral agenesis (SA) exposes the readers to several imaging challenges that depend on the prenatal or postnatal age of the patients, the radiological modality used to establish the diagnosis, and the spectrum of associated anomalies. It presents the abdominal radiograph and MRI of the lumbosacral spine of an infant of a diabetic mother. It discusses the imaging findings of SA as a feature of caudal regression syndrome (CRS) and syrenomyelia. It also reviews the usefulness and limitations of other imaging techniques such as ultrasound, CT, and prenatal MRI in the radiological evaluation of patients with SA. It is written for medical students, residents, or any healthcare practitioners interested in that topic.
