Case report - Necrotizing myelitis in an immunocompetent child: A case report with review of literature
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
A few cases of necrotizing myelitis have been reported in adults since its first description in 1973. No case has been described in the pediatric age group. A 12-year-old boy, who presented with acute flaccid paraplegia, loss of sphincter control and sensory loss showed features suggestive of necrotizing myelitis on magnetic resonance imaging. Investigations carried out could not reveal a specific etiological or pre-disposing factor. No clinical improvement occurred despite the therapy.
