Result and Discussion: Following neurosurgical consultation, she underwent repair of her meningocele which resulted in complete resolution of her meningocele and 1 year later, she delivered her first child. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that following surgical treatment, female patients with anterior sacral meningoceles may be able to conceive and bear children.
