CT demonstration of cervical spinal cord compression--cause of reversible itching and burning in the lower extremities



CT demonstration of cervical spinal cord compression--cause of reversible itching and burning in the lower extremities



Journal of Computed Tomography 6(1): 57-60



Cervical spinal cord compression is easily and accurately demonstrated by CT. Isolated atypical sensory symptoms in the saddle area and lower extremities may be the earliest and only manifestations of cervical spinal cord compression from cervical spondylosis. A case is presented manifesting such symptoms, which were reversed completely by surgical decompression of the cervical spine.
