Hi, I don't know if this is the right section for this question or not, but I have a very urgent question so please help.

What is the condition/disease called when a newborn baby is born with (2) missing lumbar vertebrae?
How serious is this condition?
What are the effects on the baby?

And MOST importantly, can anything be done about it? Is there any treatments for it?

Is this condition curable through stem cell therapy? I know by using pluripotent stem cells new bones can be generated, but is that possible for vertebraes?

Any information would be useful. Thanks!
