In spina bifida does the cerebrum and part of the brain stem never develop?

No, that is not a part of Spina Bifida. What does happen with many children with Spina Bifida is a condition called Arnold Chiari II, which causes the cerebellum and the brain stem to extend down into the area where the spinal cord is, which can cause various problems such as swallowing and feeding problems in the infant with Spina Bifida.

My chin is 30 inches long do I have Spina Bifida?

The size of one's chin has nothing to do with Spina Bifida. If you have Spina Bifida, you would have a scar on your lower back where you had a hole when you were born, or if you have the more mild form, Spina Bifida Occulta, you might have a patch of hair or a dimple on your lower back that would indicate missing vertebrae or parts of vertebrae. Many people with Spina Bifida Occulta never know they have it.

How do you diagnose spina bifida?

In most cases, spina bifida is diagnosed prenatally, or before birth. However, some mild cases may go unnoticed until after birth (postnatal). Very mild forms (spinal bifida occulta), in which there are no symptoms, may never be detected. Severe forms of Spina Bifida are diagnosed prenatally using maternal serum alpha fetoprotein (MSAFP) screening and fetal ultrasound. Mild cases of spina bifida (occulta, closed) that aren't diagnosed prenatally can be diagnosed with an X-ray.

Can people with spina bifida walk?

Yes. I have spina bifida and I'm twenty years old and I've been able to walk completely normal my entire life with no crutches or braces of any kind and have never had any complications. Not all people with Spina Bifida can walk. It depends on the severity of the condition in the individual. But with advances in medicine, children with Spina Bifida can now receive early intervention and many are able to walk, at least with crutches or a walker, if not unaided.

What is spina bifida involved in?

The spinal bones in spina bifida never completely grew entirely around the spinal cord nerve. You don't "get" it, it is a birth defect. The defect can be minor, and not much affect the person's life, or be profound and keep the person in bed with the spinal cord exposed and vulnerable.
