PMID:  21537558     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
METHOD: The sample consisted of 13 schistosomiasis mansoni carriers examined at the moment of the diagnosis of myelitis.
RESULTS: The classical triad (lumbago, weakness at the lower limbs and urinary dysfunctions) was documented in 11 (86.61%) patients. The distribution of the clinical forms was: myeloradicular in six patients (46.15%), radicular in four (30.76%) and myelitic in three (23.07%).
CONCLUSION: The radicular dysfunction and their clinical associated forms were the most prominent pattern during the early phase of this disease.
