inflammation involving the whole of the spinal cord at one (or several) levels X Y Z
Inflammation in the spinal cord interfering with nerve function below the level of the inflammation. - An acute attack of inflammatory demyelination that involves a section of the spinal cord. Paralysis and numbness are experienced in the legs and trunk below the level of the inflammation.
An acute attack of inflammatory demyelination that involves both sides of the spinal cord. The spinal cord loses its ability to transmit nerve impulses. Paralysis and numbness may be experienced in the legs and trunk below the level of the inflammation.
Inflammation of the spinal cord, which damages the myelin covering, which causes a complete or an incomplete paraylsis.
The sudden onset of spinal cord disease. Symptoms include general back pain followed by weakness in the feet and legs that moves upward. There is no cure and many patients are left with permanent disabilities or paralysis. Transverse Myelitis is a demyelinating disorder that may be associated with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Also see demyelinating disorders.
inflammation and swelling along the spinal cord with motor or sensory nerve dysfunction.
A medical condition in which nerves in the spinal cord become inflamed and lose the ability to send messages. It can be caused by a virus, and affects the insulating layer of material, called myelin, that covers some of the nerve cells and helps them to send messages. Transverse myelitis can cause paralysis, rather like a traumatic spinal cord injury.
an acute spinal cord disorder causing sudden low back pain and muscle weakness and abnormal sensory sensations in the lower extremities. Transverse myelitis often remits spontaneously; however, severe or long-lasting cases may lead to permanent disability.
Transverse myelitis is a neurological disorder caused by a loss of the myelin encasing the spinal cord, also known as demyelination. This demyelination arises idiopathically following infections or vaccination, or due to multiple sclerosis. One major theory of the cause is that an immune-mediated inflammation is present as the result of exposure to a viral antigen.
