Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Only nine cases of adrenomyeloneuropathy have been reported in the literature. It manifested as adrenal insufficiency, spastic paraparesis, loss of bowel, bladder and sexual functions, and peripheral neuropathy. Our paper describes a patient with the diagnosis of adrenomyeloneuropathy who was admitted to our hospital for rehabilitation. Family and neurological history, physical examination and special laboratory studies such as ACTH stimulation test, electrodiagnostic findings, cystometrogram and sexual function evaluation were essential to establish the diagnosis of this disease. His rehabilitation consisted of bowel and bladder training, ambulation with long-leg braces and crutches, wheelchair mobilization and transfers, and independence of all activities of daily living.
