ABSTRACT:

Spinal Cord Injury Without Radiographic Abnormality defines the clinical symptoms of traumatic myelopathy with no radiographic or computed tomographic features of spinal fracture or instability. This condition mostly affects the children below 8-years old and a rare phenomenon in adults. We aimed to report an adult patient with spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality after a heavy fall of truck holder to his head and neck regions.

 

et Radyografik anormalliğin eşlik etmediği spinal kord hasarı; radyografik olarak veya bilgisayarlı tomografide omurga kırığı ya da instabilitesinin saptanmadığı travmatik myelopatiyi tarif etmektedir. Bu durum çoğunlukla 8 yaş altı çocukları etkilemekte, erişkinde ise nadiren görülmektedir. Biz de baş ve boyun bölgesine kamyon kasası çarpması sonrası radyografik anormalliğin eşlik etmediği spinal kord hasarı bulguları gösteren erişkin hastanın sunumunu amaçladık
