    Thank you for the link information but I do not download information off the internet because of viruses. You can directly send images to me that I review in my spare time.

    You mother cannot move her legs and hands. The differential diagnosis would include two pages of potential problems. The spine would be only one portion of the possibilities. Metabolic, inflammatory, neoplastic and infectious disorders also come to mind as possibilities.

    Please be very specific regarding onset of symptoms, how these symptoms evolved, the time periods, what accompanying symptoms occurred, the age of the patient, the past medical history and what has been done to diagnose and treat her.

    The MRI images are basically unreadable but the report is valuable. The radiology report notes a syringomyelia in the cervical cord that extends to the upper thoracic spine. This is a cavitation of the central canal in the cord and the expanding “balloon” in the center of the cord causes neurological injury.

    There are many reasons for syringomyelia but one that should be considered is the Arnold Chiari syndrome. This syndrome is caused when the brain descends below the foramen magnum which prevents circulation of the CSF. She needs attention of a neurosurgeon as soon as possible.
