Abstract

Three patients presented with hand wasting and weakness secondary to mid-cervical spinal cord compression. This was due to cervical spondylosis in two patients and a meningioma in one case. This phenomenon is probably similar to that seen with foramen magnum lesions and may be due to spinal cord ischemia distal to the compression, secondary to venous stasis.
