    Does it eventully go away? My son has one and he is 2. I was just wondering if he will have it into adulthood.

    My daughter was born with a Sacral Dimple… I was the first that noticed and thought she had a second anus!! It completely freaked me out! So I brought it up and her first Doctors appointment… As a precaution we had an ultrasound done and it revealed nothing serious… She is now 7 months old and it seems that she has grown in to her sacral dimple, its barely there now…

    People in both my mom’s family and my husband’s have this, but I have never heard it called a ‘birth defect’ and we are all pretty medically informed. I am not doubting it, just very surprised. My daughter has it too, but it is not as severe as the picture. No one I know who has one has had any problems whatsoever. I just thought it was a family trait and none of the doctors that have examined her have ever mentioned it (including Kosair Children’s Hospital). Hmmmmm…….and no they don’t go away. The adults I know say they still have them.

    By baby girl was born with a sacral dimple. The Dr. sent her for an ultrasound in the hospital and everything looked fine. She is 8 months now and it is barely visable.

    I was born with a Sacral-Dimple, I can fit my whole thumb into it. Whilst I have had no significant issues that I believe to be related to it, I do suffer rqather intense back pain quite often. Some children out grow it and it just becomes a tiny dimple, mine grew with me and actually became larger.
