My BIL presents with the following:
(Note: He is a forester and has exposure to pesticides, spiders, mold and trees.)
Pain started in the left inner thigh,
moved up and around abdomen and back.Level 10
Left leg tingling and hurts to touch lightly.
A syrinx in the spine
Lesions on the lower lumbar region on the spine.
High level of white blood cells in spinal tap fluid but cells look normal.
Dc. Just said it looked like transverse myelitis
But that does not tell us what the lesions are.
They are trying to avoid doing a biopsy due to the risk.
