Myelopathy

Description

 

Myelopathy refers to pathology of the spinal cord.  When due to trauma, it is known as spinal cord injury. When inflammatory, it is known as myelitis. Disease that is vascular in nature is known as vascular myelopathy.
 
Clinical signs and symptoms depend on which spinal cord level (cervical, thoracic or lumbar) is affected and the extent (anterior, posterior or lateral) of the pathology, and may include:
upper motor neuron signs (weakness, spasticity, clumsiness, altered tonus)
pathological hyperreflexia and inverted Plantar reflex (positive Babinski sign)
sensory deficits
bowel/bladder symptoms and sexual dysfunction.
Differential diagnosis of chronic myelopathy is extensive. Source: Wikipedia
