A case of congenital fibrosarcoma of the thoracolumbar region is described in a newborn infant. Its clinical presentation and the presence of spina bifida from the tenth thoracic vertebra through the sacral segments suggested the possibility of a myelomeningocele. The tumor was excised and the patient remained neurologically intact.
