Study design: Case report. Objective: To describe the difficulty in diagnosing spinal pseudomeningocoele. Setting: Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Malaya Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Case report: A case of progressive sacral swelling in a paraplegic man who sustained spinal cord injury 14 years ago is presented.
