  BioMed Central | Full text | Prenatal diagnosis of Caudal Regression Syndrome : a case report
Caudal regression is a rare syndrome which has a spectrum of congenital malformations ranging from simple anal atresia to absence of sacral, lumbar and possibly lower thoracic vertebrae, to the most severe form which is known as sirenomelia.
Caudal regression syndrome is an uncommon malformation in the general population, but occurs in about one in 350 infants of diabetic mothers, representing an increase of about 200-fold over the rate seen in the general population [2].
Orthopedic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary and cardiac anomalies are associated with caudal regression syndrome [11].

 Caudal epidural block versus other methods of postoperative pain relief for circumcision in boys
Circumcision is a commonly performed surgical procedure in boys and caudal analgesia is frequently used to minimize discomfort of penile surgery postoperatively.
Published randomized and quasi-randomized controlled trials in which postoperative analgesia by caudal epidural block is compared with a non-caudal method of analgesia, in boys whose mean age is between 28 days and 16 years, having elective surgery for circumcision.
Although the need for rescue analgesia is reduced in the early postoperative period when caudal is compared with parenteral analgesia,evidence from trials may no longer reflect current practice and is limited by small numbers and poor methodology.

Caudal Regression Syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal development of the lower spine end of the developing fetus.
Caudal regression syndrome describes a spectrum of congenital malformations that range from simple anal atresia to absence of the sacral, lumbar and possibly lower thoracic vertebrae, to the most severe form with fusion of the lower extremities, also known as sirenomelia, or "mermaid syndrome".
Caudal regression syndrome is a rare congenital defect, characterized by the absence of the sacrum, and defects of variable portions of lumbar spine, associated with anomalies from different systems.

 Introduction/Background
Caudal to the chiasm are the optic tracts, which are part of the ventral surface of the brain.

 Caudal Epidural Anaesthesia (page 1)
Caudal anaesthesia has been used for many years and is the easiest and safest approach to the epidural space.
However in the very young a caudal block may be adequate to carry out urgent procedures such as reduction of incarcerated hernias, allowing return of normal bowel function prior to surgical repair.
It is this difference that gives rise to the predictability of caudal local anaesthetic spread in children and its unpredictability in adults.

 Roleof Caudal, Pudendal and Paracervical blocks
Caudal epidurals in labour have become less popular because better perineal analgesia can be achieved by the use of epidural infusions and primigravidae are more likely to receive an epidural block.
If used for perineal anaesthesia only, caudal block is a useful, safe technique for experienced anaesthetists provided that the volume of local anaesthetic is limited to a maximum of 10 mls, injected slowly (with multiple aspirations).
In most Australian hospitals, caudal blocks are being used less frequently in labour as the number of spinals has increased ( Table 2.1).

 The Human Tail, and Other Tales of Evolution by David Menton
Ledley strongly implied that this growth (called a caudal appendage) was essentially a "human tail," though he admitted that it had virtually none of the distinctive biological characteristics of a tail!
In fact, the caudal appendage Ledley described is merely a fatty outgrowth of skin that wasn't located in the right place on the back to be a tail!
Still, Ledley saw his caudal appendage as providing compelling proof for the evolution of man from our monkey-like ancestors.
