  • Syringomyelia

    To the Editor: Syringomyelia is a condition with various causes in which fluid accumulates in an abnormal cavity within the spinal cord.[nejm.org] Syringomyelia is the result of an abnormal circulation in the CSFM (cerebrospinal fluid). An important gene often associated with this disorder is ACY1 (aminoacylase 1).[raregenomics.org] The aetiopathogenesis of syrinx formation is not fully elucidated but is suggested to be due to an interaction between abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) hydrodynamics and[academic.oup.com]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    A subdural hematoma (SDH) is a type of hematoma—usually associated with traumatic brain injury—in which blood gathers between the inner layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater. It usually results from tears in bridging veins that cross the subdural space. Subdural hematomas may cause an increase in[…][en.wikipedia.org]
