17 Possible Causes for Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor, Proximal Muscle Weakness of the Lower Extremity

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    High-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) is an etiologic agent in squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) arising in the oropharynx and cervix, and a proven prognostic factor in oropharyngeal SqCC. Many studies have found HPV in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Recent studies advocate the detection of messenger RNA[…][]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Diagnostics and treatment of bronchogenic non-small cell lung carcinoma is a severe clinical problem. Radical surgery is the major treatment modality with the highest chance for a long-time survival. The aim of the study was to map metastasizing of bronchogenic non-small cell lung carcinoma into homolateral mediastinal[…][]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    31.4 Conclusion Patients with a treatment-free interval of less than 3 months after first-line treatment, failing first-line treatment, with poor performance status or major comorbidities, or with low tolerance to first-line chemotherapy should in general not receive second-line chemotherapy because of very low[…][]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    The goal of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of intraoperative lumbar subarachnoid drainage (LSAD) for prevention of CSF leakage after spinal cord tumor resection.[] Extradural spinal cord tumors are encountered in more than 50% of cases . In descending order of frequency, they are found in the thoracic and lumbar areas.[] Cervical spinal cord tumors can lead to weakness and sensory changes of both arms and legs whereas thoracic or lumbar spinal tumors do not affect arm function.[]

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

Mild-to-moderate enhancement is a known imaging feature for most of those lesions.[] Back pain is the presenting symptom and might occur in an episodic manner over time. [3] Typical magnetic resonance imaging findings are of fusiform expansion of the spinal[]

  • Syringomyelia

    Spinal gummas are rare and may present as a spinal cord tumor. Diagnostic Procedures 1. The blood serological tests for syphilis will be positive in all cases. 2.[] Lumbar puncture may show evidence of occlusion of the subarachnoid space with low opening pressure, positive Queckenstedt test, xanthochromic CSF, lymphocytic pleocytosis,[] […] lateral sclerosis and is caused by progressive loss of anterior horn cells secondary to ischemia due to an arteritis involving the penetrating branches from the anterior spinal[]

  • Femoral Neuropathy
