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

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    First described in 1986, the basaloid squamous variant of laryngeal carcinoma is an uncommon, aggressive neoplasm with early presentation of metastatic disease and widespread dissemination. It is characterized primarily by its biphasic morphologic appearance. A 64-year-old female smoker presented with left hilar and[…][]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Colonic metastasis of the bronchogenic carcinoma is quite rare. Here we document an extremely rare presentation of the lung cancer that presented with acute abdomen and was diagnosed as intestinal obstruction due to colon carcinoma initially. He underwent an urgent operation and the obliterating mass in the[…][]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    Amrubicin (AMR), a new anthracycline agent, has shown promising results for advanced small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), although the efficacy of AMR alone against refractory relapsed SCLC is insufficient. This study was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination of AMR and carboplatin (CBDCA) in[…][]

  • Spinal Cord Metastasis

    Wilms' tumor metastasis to the spinal cord is very rare at any age.[] We recently encountered a case of a 4-year-old girl, who had a solitary lumbar spinal cord metastasis about 1 year following the initial nephrectomy and an incomplete course[] […] of chemotherapy for a stage I Wilms' tumor.[]

  • 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

    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[]

  • Spinal Stenosis

    ., characteristic positional nature of symptoms). [42] Differential Diagnosis Pathologies/diseases that mimic lumbar spinal stenosis are: disc herniation spinal cord primary[] […] or secondary tumor peripheral neuropathy osteoarthritis of hips or knees osteoporotic/ lumbar compression fracture myofascial pain rheumatoid arthritis lumbar degenerative[]

  • 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[]

  • 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[]

  • Spinal Metastasis

    At that time the patient complained of severe lumbar pain and myelography revealed a tumor mass in the spinal cord (L1-L2).[] Weakness usually affects the proximal muscles of the lower extremities and may or may not involve sensory loss.[] . - 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[]
