Background: Neural tube defects are a group of congenital malformations in which the spinal column is bifid as a result of failed closure of the embryonic neural tube. Although not common, they might be complicated with pelvic organ prolapse mostly due to abnormal innervation and the resulting atrophy of the pelvic floor musculature.
