Management of long segment transverse myelitis through prescription of homoeopathic medicine Phosphoric acid attained after Generalization of rubric: A case report
Author(s): Dr. Bidwalkar and Dr. M Satish Krishna
Abstract:
A rare form of extensive inflammation of the spinal cord known as Longitudinal Segment Transverse Myelitis (LSTM) 1 causes T2 hyperintensity in the spinal region of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that spans three or more vertebral segments. It has a potentially bad consequence and a sudden start of sensory, motor, and autonomic impairment.
I like to share a case of a 39-year-old LSTM diagnosed woman who experienced a variety of symptoms, including extreme weakness and a steady decline in the motor function of her back and limbs.
On assessment of the central nervous system, there is an increased DTR (Deep Tendon Reflexes), patchy sensory loss without a clear sensory level, weakness in the lower limbs, hypotonia in the lower limbs, and power in the upper limbs.
Long segment T2 hyperintensity with no discernible brain involvement was seen on the contrast-enhanced MRI spine.
She received treatment using Staphysagria and phosphoric acid, followed by identical-sized (30) globules of placebo. The presentation of LSTM varies, as do its etiologies. Although they may be difficult to track locally, Causative factors and specific PQRS symptoms (most striking, uncommon, peculiar, rare and strange characteristic signs and symptoms,) with concomitant symptoms are strongly advised for a suitable Homoeopathic prescription; this requires careful case taking and good observational abilities. As it did in this case, early and aggressive prescription of medium to high potentized medicine may aid in a quicker recovery.
