Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 67-year-old man with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus progressively developed, over a 2-year period, lower extremity sensory and motor defects associated with impaired bladder function and perineal and perianal sensation related to a disease of the conus medullaris extending from T12 to S5. The magnetic resonance imaging scan suggested myelomalacia and the diagnosis of progressive necrotic myelopathy was confirmed by surgical intervention.
