Congenital spinal dermal sinus tract is a rare entity and is usually solitary. Multiple dermal sinus tracts in a child are extremely rare; so far, only five cases have been published in the English literature to our knowledge. We report a case of double dermal sinus tracts with double intradural dermoid, and such a combination has not been reported. Meticulous excision of both dermal sinus tracts and intradural dermoid resulted in complete recovery. We present this rare entity and review the literature.
