Irreversible spinal cord injury as a complication of subarachnoid ethanol neurolysis



Irreversible spinal cord injury as a complication of subarachnoid ethanol neurolysis



Neurology 54(7): 1522-1524



Subarachnoid neurolysis using ethanol to destroy selectively the posterior roots of the spinal cord is a method for providing pain relief in patients with advanced cancer. Weakness of the extremities is a complication of the procedure that has been attributed to spread of the neurolytic agent to the anterior roots. The authors provide evidence of spinal cord injury as a cause of lower extremity weakness in a patient after subarachnoid ethanol neurolysis.
