This is a case report illustrating an overdose of baclofen in a 10-year-old boy due to a likely malfunction of a SynchroMed II pump. This ultimately necessitated a pump replacement. One-year follow-up showed no further incidents of baclofen overdose, with multiple pump refills.

This is the first reported case of an adult presenting with tethering symptoms, limb discrepancy on physical examination, a low-lying spinal cord, and duplicate filum terminale discovered intraoperatively. Intraoperative imaging and pathological analysis of a specimen confirmed the diagnosis of duplicate filum. This is the first reported adult case with duplication of the filum terminale. Release of both fila was necessary in this case to relieve the tethering symptoms.
