Syringomesencephalia: Report of a Case

Syringomesencephalia: Report of a Case Abstract • A woman had progressive neurologic deterioration attributed to multiple sclerosis. Ophthalmologic findings were consistent with a unilateral lesion of the medial longitudinal fasciculus. Autopsy disclosed a mesencephalic syrinx and cerebellar atrophy secondary to alcoholism. Syringomesencephalia is distinctly uncommon; this is the third known case to our knowledge. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract • A woman had progressive neurologic deterioration attributed to multiple sclerosis. Ophthalmologic findings were consistent with a unilateral lesion of the medial longitudinal fasciculus. Autopsy disclosed a mesencephalic syrinx and cerebellar atrophy secondary to alcoholism. Syringomesencephalia is distinctly uncommon; this is the third known case to our knowledge. References 1.
