Were you looking for information about Syringomyelia? Siringomielia is a common misspelling of syringomyelia.
Syringomyelia is a type of disorder that occurs when a cyst forms within the spinal cord. Over time, this cyst grows and, eventually, destroys the center of the spinal cord. Syringomyelia is usually related to a malformation that causes part of the brain to protrude from its normal location into the neck portion of the spinal cord. However, it can also result from other conditions, such as meningitis or a tumor. Possible symptoms of this condition include headaches, chronic severe pain, and loss of bowel or bladder function.
