Syndrome Brown-Sekar. Possible variants of the current
Many people often experience periodicback pain. The reasons for their occurrence are very diverse: trauma, neurological diseases against the background of damage to the nervous system. One of the most complex manifestations of diseases associated with back pain is the Brown-Sekar syndrome.
Much rarer, but still there were casesthe emergence of this syndrome due to extramedullary tumor, disc herniation, epidural hematoma, spinal infarction, or stratification of the vertebral artery. But the main reason is the spinal cord injury as a result of a mechanical trauma.
Syndrome Brown-Secar in the reverse version hasfollowing features. Symptoms in this case are different. On the side that is the site of the focus, there may be a violation of surface sensitivity, and on the other - paralysis and paresis. The Brown-Sekar symptom is present only on the side of the trauma (motor disorders, sensitivity disorders).
The so-called partial variant of the syndrome differs from those mentioned above in that the symptoms are almost not manifested or are only noted zonally.
An inalienable feature of such a disease asBrown-Sekar syndrome, is that against the background of the above changes, the sensitivity in muscles and joints is preserved. This fact is easily explained by the fact that the cordages located behind the spinal cord remain unscathed, thanks to the fact that their blood is supplied by the spinal artery.
The above-described symptoms of the Brown-Sekar syndrome are clinically confirmed and repeatedly observed in medical practice.
