Radiculomyelopathy

Myeloradiculopathy


Presentation

  • Tumoral calcinosis is a rare tumoral calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease which presents as periarticular soft tissue calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Results: The patient had an NMO flare constituting Myeloradiculopathy, a rare presentation of NMOSD. She received Plasmapharesis with near complete resolution of her symptoms. Conclusions: Myeloradiculopathy is an uncommon presentation of NMO.[neurology.org]
  • We presented this case and reviewed the literature to acknowledge so-call "pseudogout syndrome."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case of cervical radiculomyelopathy caused by multiple calcified nodules in the ligamenta flava is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A clinical description of the disease is then presented and variations in India from the standard description are highlighted.[books.google.ro]
Cerebral Palsy
  • Three patients with severe athetoid-dystonic type of cerebral palsy involving the neck musculature developed in their fourth to fifth decade progressive cervical radiculomyelopathy associated with vertebral spondylarthrotic compressive lesions in addition[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • palsy involving the neck musculature developed in their fourth to fifth decade progressive cervical radiculomyelopathy associated with vertebral spondylarthrotic compressive lesions in addition to their long-standing neurological syndrome.[karger.com]
Epilepsy
  • It also covers epilepsy, vascular diseases, degenerative and environmental diseases, nutritional deficiency disorders, paediatric neurology, imaging of CNS infections, and other disorders of the nervous system.[books.google.ro]
Lordosis
  • Cervical lordosis, flexion-extension angles, range of motion (ROM), and the angulation and the extent of vertebral slippage at the affected nerve root levels were measured preoperatively and at last follow-up examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The mean sagittal lordosis of the C2-7 spine increased from -16.2 9.2 preoperatively to -18.5 11.9 at last follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Shoulder Pain
  • A 27-year-old woman with gait disturbance and shoulder pain radiating into the right upper arm and back presented for clinical evaluation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Urinary Retention
  • It should, nevertheless, be considered in the differential diagnosis of urinary retention, with or without long-tract signs, in young patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Radiculomyelopathy
  • STUDY DESIGN: A comparative study was performed in patients with cervical radiculomyelopathy due to soft disc herniation to compare surgical results of laminoplasty with anterior discectomy and arthrodesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Wide experience over a 20-year period with 1000 interventions for radiculomyelopathy caused by cervical arthrosis is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case of herpes simplex genitalis producing radiculomyelopathy with urinary retention is reported. The patient was treated with adenosine arabinoside intravenously and made a complete recovery over 4 weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • TY - JOUR T1 - Cervical radiculomyelopathy due to calcified ligamenta flava.[unboundmedicine.com]
  • Synonym(s): radiculomyelopathy. [ myelo- L. radicula, root, G. pathos, disease] radiculomyelopathy disease of the nerve roots and spinal cord. degenerative radiculomyelopathy slowly progressive in adult German shepherd and other breeds of dogs; cause[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
Involuntary Movements
  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • 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.[karger.com]
Long Tract Signs
  • It should, nevertheless, be considered in the differential diagnosis of urinary retention, with or without long-tract signs, in young patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Soft Tissue Calcification
  • Tumoral calcinosis is a rare tumoral calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease which presents as periarticular soft tissue calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Mycobacterium Kansasii
  • We report two cases of disabling myelopathy in association with pulmonary infection by Mycobacterium kansasii and Mycobacterium malmoense; the myelopathy is presumed to be a para-infectious phenomenon. ID: 4108158[research.ed.ac.uk]

Treatment

  • This treatment protocol delivered rapid clinical benefits and long-term tumor control demonstrating the viability of SRS in the treatment of this difficult and rare condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Surgical excision is the treatment of choice, because this is completely curative without known recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • No significant differences were observed between groups, up to two years following treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • No significant differences were observed between the groups up to 2 years after treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • One trial (68 patients with mild functional deficit associated with cervical myelopathy) found no significant differences between surgery and conservative treatment in three years following treatment.[cochrane.org]

Prognosis

  • No evidence of any complications associated with irradiation was apparent, and the patient continued to demonstrate a positive prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Spinal lesions in SAPHO syndrome are described in 50[percnt] of the cases but generally show a good prognosis and rarely cause neurological deterioration.[neurology.org]

  • This cautious approach is understandable, given the prognosis of the illness and the devastation that being given the diagnosis may cause to a person's life.[patient.info]

Etiology

  • Such characteristic similarities in both clinical and radiologic features are important in considering the etiology of calcification of the cervical ligamenta flawa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Work up for other etiologies was negative. Results: The patient had an NMO flare constituting Myeloradiculopathy, a rare presentation of NMOSD. She received Plasmapharesis with near complete resolution of her symptoms.[neurology.org]

Epidemiology

  • The characteristics of the virus, its epidemiology and the diag nosis and management of the various forms of infection are all considered.[books.google.ro]
  • Each chapter begins with a shot historical account of the disease, followed by a critical evaluation of the epidemiological and/or hospital based data. This is then compared with the data of other global populations.[books.google.ro]
  • There may be several causes for such oxidative damage to motor neurons and the disease may just represent an end-stage phenotypic expression of these abnormalities. [ 4 ] Epidemiology MND is relatively uncommon with an annual incidence of about 2 cases[patient.info]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology This is a degenerative condition that affects motor neurons, namely the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord and the motor cranial nuclei.[patient.info]

Prevention

  • Chapter 69 Surrogate Markers of Antiretroviral Efficacy 826 Overcoming Barriers to Providing ARV Therapy in ResourceLimited Settings 831 Chapter 71 Antiretroviral Drugs for HIV Prevention 836 Chapter 72 Acute HIV Infection 843 Chapter 73 Opportunistic[books.google.ro]
