Disease Myelitis, Transverse

Name Myelitis, Transverse
Synonyms Acute Transverse Myelitis | Demyelinative Myelitis | Myelitides, Subacute Transverse | Myelitis, Acute Transverse | Myelitis, Demyelinative | Myelitis, Necrotizing | Myelitis, Paraneoplastic | Myelitis, Postinfectious | Myelitis, Postvaccinal | Myelitis, Subacute Transverse | Necrotizing Myelitis | Paraneoplastic Myelitis | Postinfectious Myelitis | Postvaccinal Myelitis | Subacute Transverse Myelitis | Transverse Myelitis | Transverse Myelitis, Acute | Transverse Myelitis, Subacute | Transverse Myelopathy Syndrome | Transverse Myelopathy Syndromes
Definition Inflammation of a transverse portion of the spinal cord characterized by acute or subacute segmental demyelination or necrosis. The condition may occur sporadically, follow an infection or vaccination, or present as a paraneoplastic syndrome (see also ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, ACUTE DISSEMINATED). Clinical manifestations include motor weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1242-6)
