Understanding Transverse Myelitis: Causes and Pathology
Transverse Myelitis is a rare spinal cord disorder characterised by inflammation and ‘de-myelination.’ It can be triggered by viruses, infections, systemic diseases like lupus or sarcoidosis, or an auto-immune response. The inflammation can result in nerve pain, muscle weakness, sensory loss, and autonomic impairment, with severity depending on the affected spinal cord level.
Recovery varies based on the cause, severity, and onset speed, with optimal recovery expected within the first three to six months. While many individuals recover well, those with severe cases may experience long-term challenges, requiring ongoing care and management.
