Caudal regression syndrome, or sacral agenesis (or hypoplasia of the sacrum), is a congenital disorder in which there is abnormal fetal development of the lower spine—the caudal partition of the spine it occurs at a rate of approximately one per 25,000 live births. Caudal regression syndrome comprises a variety of obvious physical anomalies to varying degrees, and associated anomalies of multiorgan system dysfunction are present the presentation of neonates with sacral agenesis can vary considerably. Caudal regression syndrome: can also include portions of the lumbar spine and be called lumbosacral agenesis or caudal regression syndrome: sa: sirenomelia: a rare congenital disorder characterized by anomalies of the lower spine and the lower limbs the disorder is characterized by partial or complete fusion of the legs.

Caudal regression syndrome (crs) is a rare congenital disorder that occurs when the lowest half of the body (caudal) does not fully form in utero, resulting in varying degrees of developmental failure including a partially formed or absent lower half of the spine, orthopedic malformations, spinal cord defects, and related motor and sensory deficits.

Caudal regression syndrome is a term used to describe a spectrum of congenital malformations that range from and include: simple anal atresia sacral agenesis and occasionally absence of the lumbar and lower thoracic vertebrae (caudal aplasia/dysplasia.
The malformations include a first and second branchial arch sequence, ectopia cordis with congenital heart defect, caudal “regression” sequence with absent sacrum and hypoplastic right femur, ectrodactly, left radial abnormality, islet cell hyperplasia, and skin lesions. The term caudal regression syndrome covers several malformations of the caudal spine that range from sacral agenesis to sirenomelia, in which the legs are fused together (also known as mermaid syndrome. Sirenomelia (otherwise known as mermaid syndrome), is a very rare congenital anomaly characterized by variable fusion of lower limbs along with thoracolumbar spinal anomalies, sacrococcygeal agenesis, genitourinary and gastrointestinal tract malformations, with an incidence of 08 to 1 case per 100,000 births.
