Syringomelia

Were you looking for information about Syringomyelia? Syringomelia is a common misspelling of syringomyelia.
 
Syringomyelia is a condition that affects the spinal cord. This condition causes a cyst to form within the spinal cord. As this cyst grows over time, it will eventually destroy the inside of the spinal cord. In most cases, the condition is related to a congenital abnormality that occurs during the development of the fetus. Possible symptoms of syringomyelia include headaches, chronic severe pain, and a loss of bladder or bowel function. The most common method of treatment typically involves surgery.
