18-APRIL-2005 TAREQ MUHAMED AMRO 36 YEARS HUGE MIXED PCD C6-7 WITH MALACIA OF THE SPINAL CORD AT THAT LEVEL

The patient  came with neck pain and weak right hand grip and extension and the triceps muscle of both upper limbs. MRI of the cervical spine showed medium large PCD C6-7 with malacia of the spinal cord. Suspicion about MS was ruled out by performing brain MRI. Due to the extensive malacia of the spinal cord in relation to the size of disc extrusion suspicion about instability was considered and discectomy C6-7 was performed and cage fusion was done.

The patient came 08-August-2006 with normalization of all neurologic signs and he was complaining of burning sensation in the left shoulder and left chest wall. It was explained to him that, the morphologic changes which were noted in the preoperative MRI will remain forever and palliative measures were undertaken.
