Myelopathy of pernicious anemia by Shyam S. Pant Download PDF EPUB FB2

Although it has been observed that a vitamin B 12 (VB 12) deficiency may lead to defects in the nervous system, there is a lack of studies elucidating whether VB 12 has a role in the pathogenesis of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). The present study describes two cases of CSM observed in the clinic, where the patients presented with common characteristics of the typical clinical symptoms Cited by: 5.

Myelopathy is an inclusive term, referring to pathology leading to a neurologic deficit related to the spinal cord. The clinical diagnosis of myelopathy requires a detailed history and physical examination to define the clinical syndrome.

Neuroimaging is indicated in most instances of new-onset myelopathy. Vitamin B 12 deficiency is common, with most patients lacking classic features of advanced severe deficiency.

Early diagnosis and treatment prevent severe anemia and irreversible damage to the nervous system. We describe a year-old man with pernicious anemia who presented with clinical and radiologic features of early myelopathy and borderline low serum levels of vitamin B Cited by:   For assistance, please contact: AAN Members () or () (International) Non-AAN Member subscribers () or () option 3, select 1 Cited by: Pernicious anemia and Vitamin B 12 deficiency anemia: For initial diagnosis requiring transfusion due to severe anemia, or if there are signs or symptoms related to central nervous system impairment, such as encephalopathy, myelopathy, or severe peripheral neuropathy, requiring parenteral B.

The World Health Organization has defined anemia as a hemoglobin concentration below mmol/L (12 g/dL) in women and below. The first book has now been reprinted twice and contains the papers about the inaccuracy of the tests.

‘The Forgotten Disease’ was published in and since then there has been several important developments since then which has led to this new book – ‘What You Need To Know About Pernicious Anaemia and Vitamin B12 Deficiency.

B12 helps to produce the myelin sheath around our nerves. B12 is important in the production of healthy red blood cells and bone marrow. Some of the causes of B12 deficiency include, but are not limited to, celiac disease, pernicious anemia, immune system disorders, and alcoholism.

In my case, none of these was the cause of my severe B   History. Many researchers sequentially contributed to the discovery and identification of its etiology. Addison in was the first to characterize it as anemia, general languor, and debility [].InOsler and Gardnerin discovered its association with neuropathy and its association with myelopathy was documented 10 years later by Lichtheim.

Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to serious neurologic complications including peripheral neuropathy, bilateral cerebral dysfunction, optic neuropathy, memory loss, personality changes, impaired recall, and subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord.

Pernicious anemia sometimes causes gait disorders that are out of proportion to the peripheral neuropathy or myelopathy that is present. Testing for vitamin B 12 is indicated for patients with no obvious cause of their gait and balance difficulties; borderline cases might reveal an elevated methylmalonic acid or homocysteine level.

The book contains valuable information such as a listing of common symptoms reported by members of the Pernicious Anemia Society. This work will benefit the public and medical professionals in encouraging early diagnosis and treatment of vitamin B12 deficiency thereby preventing permanent neurological s: Index Terms Starting With 'M' (Myelopathy) Index Terms Starting With 'M' (Myelopathy) Myelopathy (spinal cord) G ICDCM Diagnosis Code G Pernicious (congenital) anemia; Congenital intrinsic factor deficiency; spondylosis - see Spondylosis, with myelopathy NEC; necrotic G (subacute) (vascular).

Causes of myelopathy include spinal stenosis, spinal trauma and spinal infections, as well as autoimmune, oncological, neurological and congenital disorders.

Myelopathy can be cervical and thoracic; cervical myelopathy is the most prevalent. Myelopathy is typically a gradual degenerative process affecting older adults. After a second surgical intervention, the patient became confused.

Four months after onset, the patient had paraplegia, severe weakness of the upper limbs, cutaneous anesthesia sparing the head, and confusion. Moderate macrocytosis, low serum B12 levels, and a positive Schilling test result led to the diagnosis of pernicious anemia.

Vitamin B 12 Deficiency: Anemia, Neuropathy, and Myelopathy Vitamin B 12 deficiency is a significant health concern in the United States; it is estimated that 5% to 40% of the elderly population have low serum B 12 levels.
