12 Possible Causes for Diplopia, Lumbar Puncture Abnormal, Spinal Canal and Spinal Cord Meningioma

  • Meningioma

    Radiation therapy to the brain and/or spinal cord/canal, for some other disease process, has been implicated in subsequent Meningioma formation, especially in children.[neurosurgerydallas.com] A 33-year-old female patient presented with diplopia and left eye ptosis 26 weeks into her first pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 54-year-old woman presented to an outside hospital with a severe, sudden onset headache along with new-onset horizontal diplopia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Pachymeningitis

    Despite usually being small, due to the confines of the spinal canal, spinal meningiomas can result in significant neurologic dysfunction.[radiopaedia.org] Diplopia charting showed uncrossed diplopia with maximum separation of images on levoversion, while Hess chart confirmed left lateral rectus paresis [Figure 2].[jcor.in] A lumbar puncture performed 9 days postoperatively revealed a CSF protein that was markedly elevated and a white blood cell count of 74 cells/µl.[doi.org]
