Summaries for Spinal Cord Infarction

NINDS : 54 Spinal cord infarction is a stroke either within the spinal cord or the arteries that supply it. It is caused by arteriosclerosis or a thickening or closing of the major arteries to the spinal cord. Frequently spinal cord infarction is caused by a specific form of arteriosclerosis called atheromatosis, in which a deposit or accumulation of lipid-containing matter forms within the arteries. Symptoms, which generally appear within minutes or a few hours of the infarction, may include intermittent sharp or burning back pain, aching pain down through the legs, weakness in the legs, paralysis, loss of deep tendon reflexes, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and incontinence.

MalaCards based summary : Spinal Cord Infarction, also known as infarction of spinal cord, is related to anterior spinal artery syndrome and mesenteric vascular occlusion. An important gene associated with Spinal Cord Infarction is MTHFR (Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Collagen chain trimerization. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, skin and pineal, and related phenotype is homeostasis/metabolism.
