Charting Pediatrics

Mar 23, 2021

Join Dr. Brumbaugh and the Children's Colorado Infectious Diseases team this Thursday, March 25 at 6 p.m. MST for our virtual COVID-19 Town Hall with live Q&A and discussion about the latest developments in the ongoing pandemic and the impact to pediatrics. Register here: 

Sacral dimples are relatively common and seen in around 2-4% of healthy, newborn babies and are not cause for concern. Although the cause of them is unknown, in most cases, sacral dimples are simply signs of minor abnormalities as the baby grows inside the womb, but in rare cases, they can indicate a deeper spinal abnormality. In this episode, we are joined by Todd Hankinson, MD to discuss the epidemiology of sacral dimples, their associated pathophysiologic conditions and indications they are associated with congenital anomalies.

Dr. Hankinson is the Chief of Neurosurgery at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is Professor of Neurosurgery and Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
