742 Possible Causes for Cervical Cord Compression

  • Narrow Cervical Spinal Canal

    The prevalence of cervical cord compression, ISI, and the clinical CM was significantly higher in the narrower CSC group.[] This may be due to cervical cord compression, where it causes spasticity and a upper motor type of paralysis.[] Figure 1 Measurement of AP diameter of cervical canal and spinal cord compression on T2 sagittal MR imaging.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    The degree of cervical cord compression was scored and correlated with neurological examination findings at the time of imaging.[] Enlarged perivascular spaces, white matter lesions, hydrocephalus, brain atrophy, cervical spinal canal stenosis with or without spinal cord compression and myelopathy, and[] Neurologic Exam Progressive compression of the spinal cord with resulting cervical myelopathy is relatively common in older individuals.[]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    […] spinal canal and may compress the cervical nerve roots and spinal cord 5.[] Cervical spondylosis is degeneration of the cervical spine that occurs during the normal course of aging, and may progress into compression of the spinal cord, or cervical[] Cervical spondylosis is an extremely common condition causing spinal cord compression, and yet it very rarely causes secondary syrinx formation.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    […] hearing impairment, sleep apnoea, hydrocephalus, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal cord compression and cervical myelopathy.[] […] spine and lumbar puncture to assess for hydrocephalus and spinal cord compression Eye examination with slit lamp to assess visual acuity and corneal and retinal disease Developmental[] […] spinal cord compression from mucopolysaccharide deposits.[]

  • Myelopathy

    In order to reveal how the cervical spinal cord was deformed and compressed by engorged epidural vein, CT myelography was performed.[] A 2014 study in the Spine Journal found that cord compression in combination with vertical spinal cord motion contributes to deterioration in cervical myelopathy.[] The red arrow points to areas where the spinal cord is compressedcervical myelopathy. Lateral MRI of a patient's cervical spine.[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    The red arrow points to areas where the spinal cord is compressedcervical myelopathy. Lateral MRI of a patient's cervical spine.[] […] ligament (OPLL), and other spinal abnormalities that cause cervical cord compression.[] The neurologic deficits due to cervical DISH are relatively rare and a few cases of cervical spinal cord compression due to atlantoaxial subluxation, odontoid fracture, pseudotumor[]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Death is usually secondary to respiratory compromise or from cervical cord compression by a very small foramen magnum.[] Cervical cord compression myelopathy is a complication of this condition.[]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    We report an affected child in whom the Binder phenotype was found on antenatal ultrasound and cervical spinal cord compression on fetal magnetic resonance imaging.[] OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of chronic cervical spinal cord compression upon remote motor unit function in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM).[] The unusual features of our case suggested that actinomycosis should be considered as a differential diagnosis of neck mass and cervical spinal cord compression.[]

  • Anauxetic Dysplasia

  • Radiculomyelopathy

    Compression of the cervical or lumbosacral spinal cord may be accompanied by significant lower motor neuron deficits.[] Among patients with skeletal fluorosis, the cervical region of the spine is the most common site for cord compression.[] It is likely that the late-onset myelopathy is linked to continuous torsion, compression and 'wear and tear' of the cervical spinal cord, induced by the involuntary movements[]
