Neural plate undergoes various transformations to become into the neural tube, and any modifications occurring during the closure, will lead to the onset of spina bifida. During pregnancy the maternal needs of folates increase due to the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins, all through the embryogenesis, velocity of growth and fetal development in the first months of pregnancy. A 12-months age, male patient, born from a normal delivery, December 5, 2008 at “Santa Barbara” Hospital, presented a tumor at birth in the posterior region of the neck; the patient was referred to the Neurosurgery Service at “Mario Catarino Rivas” Hospital. As positive information, a rounded volume increase in the cervical region was observed, it was adhere at profound plane, renitent, movable, painless, totally covered by skin. Cervical meningocele was diagnosed, confirming the diagnosis with a cervico-dorsal nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). February 2010 the tumor was removed and the patient is periodically assessed at Neurosurgery Service and in the health area, having a satisfactory evolution.
