This is a challenging question, but a good one to ask. Spina Bifida is catagorized depending on severity, and this could influence any decrease in normal lifespan.
- Spina bifida occulta can cause minor or no symptoms,
- Spina bifida cystica - meningocele is more serious,
- Spina bifida cystica - myelomeningocele is the most serious kind.
