Abstract

The occurrence of longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) in an elderly patient should evoke search for underlying systemic malignancy. Intramedullary spinal cord metastases and paraneoplastic myelopathy are the most common etiology for LETM in patients with systemic maligna...read more
