Adult onset of tethered spinal cord syndrome due to fibrous diastematomyelia: case report.


Adult onset of the symptoms of tethered spinal cord is a rare entity that is occasionally associated with diastematomyelia. Only one case of fibrous diastematomyelia in an adult has been reported. The fibrous nature of this disease may present a diagnostic difficulty. A 32-year-old man with the adult onset of impairment of sacral functions with lumbar fibrous diastematomyelia is reported. Surgical release of the spinal cord was followed by improvement of the patient's function.
