Fibrocartilaginous Embolism of The Spinal Cord - A Case Report

Ademar Lucas Junior

Fibrocartilaginous embolism of the spinal cord is considered a rare ischemic vascular syndrome [1-4], though some authors believe it to be underdiagnosed. It results in abrupt onset and rapidly progressive sensory, motor and autonomic neurologic deficits.

This paper reports a case of a teenage patient presenting with sudden onset rapidly progressive back pain associated with paraparesthesia, paraparesis and urinary retention after physical exertion. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test led to a presumptive diagnosis of spinal cord fibrocartilaginous embolism.
