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

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) , also known as oat cell lung cancer , is a subtype of bronchogenic carcinoma and considered separate from non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as it has a unique presentation, imaging appearances, treatment, and prognosis. Small cell lung cancers rapidly grow, are highly malignant, widely[…][]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Bronchogenic carcinoma is the leading cause of cancer death throughout the world and tobacco smoking is shown to be the single most important risk factor. Symptoms may include cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and chest pain and the diagnosis is made using clinical, imaging and histopathologic criteria. Despite available[…][]

  • 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 Disk Herniation

    Disc Herniation which tends to improve as the disc Hernia tion resorbs Spinal Cord Tumor Consider especially in age under 20 or over 60 years Relentless pain aggravated or[] […] spine Degenerative Joint Disease Lumbar Radiculopathy due to spine degeneration (osteophytes or bone spurs) typically follows a fixed or progressive course Contrast with Lumbar[]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    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.[] Spinal tumors are also referred to by the part of the spine in which they occur: Cervical Thoracic Lumbar Sacrum Clinically, spinal cord tumors are divided into three major[]

  • Hematomyelia

    cord, more common in the cervical followed by thoracic and lumbar spine.[] Nearly half of these tumors may have cysts or syringe hydromyelia. 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[]

  • Spastic Ataxia with Congenital Miosis

  • Carcinoma of the Prostate

    Metastatic disease in the lumbar area can cause spinal cord compression.[] Weakness usually affects the proximal muscles of the lower extremities and may or may not involve sensory loss.[] Metastasis to the dura and adjacent parenchyma occurs in 1 to 2 percent of patients with metastatic prostate cancer and is more common in those with tumors that do not respond[]

  • Lumbar and Sacral Arthritis

    When the primary cause of dysfunction or pain in L5-S1 region is a tumor or an infection of the spinal cord, elimination of causative factor is the chief goal.[] Polymyositis typically presents with proximal muscle weakness and, to a much lesser extent, proximal muscle pain.[] Lumbar canal stenosis Advanced spondylosis (degeneration of the spine).[]

  • Spinal Metastasis

    . - 40% of all cancer patients develop spinal metastases - 10-30% of spinal metastases patients will develop spinal cord compression (20K-30K cases/yr) Distribution of spinal[] Weakness usually affects the proximal muscles of the lower extremities and may or may not involve sensory loss.[] […] metastases per spine segments - Thoracic 70% - Lumbar 20% - Cervical 10% Tumors that metastasize to the spine 50% of all spinal mets are from breast, lung, prostate.[]
