In this study a 42-year female patient with history of long-standing rheumatoid arthritis was diagnosed with compressive myelopathy
secondary to complications of rheumatoid arthritis.

Hence, physicians should consider the possibility of a lymphoproliferative disorder in the differential diagnosis of compressive myelopathy
. The clinical, radiological, and histological features of this disease can mimic other medical conditions causing compressive myelopathy
, including pathological compression fractures, infectious lesions, or carcinomatous deposits.
The objective of the present study was to determine the frequency of causes of non-traumatic compressive myelopathy
on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in patients with paraplegia / quadriplegia.
Spinal cord complications of CoA are rare, and only a few cases have been reported due to subarachnoid hemorrhage following rupture of an aneurysm of abnormally dilated spinal artery.[sup], Compressive myelopathy
due to collaterals in the spinal cord is a very unusual presentation, and few reports have been reported worldwide.[sup] The development of an acute, nontraumatic epidural hematoma is even rarer.[sup]
Obviously, in order for cord compressive myelopathy
to be present, there must be, at a minimum, physical indentation of the spinal cord.
In patients with compressive myelopathy
secondary to ossification of PLL and/or LF, fluorosis should be considered as a possible cause, especially in endemic regions.
Increased signal intensity of the spinal cord onmagnetic resonance images in cervical compressive myelopathy
. Does it predict the outcome of conservative treatment?
The herniated disk material causes signs of acute, compressive myelopathy
. Dogs often show clinical signs of acute disk herniation at 3-6 years of age.
There was a significant intra-spinal component causing a compressive myelopathy
of the cervical spine (Fig.
