Stretching (?) of the spinal cord as a cause of paraplegia in a patient with Cushing’s syndrome

Paraplegia with a total anesthesia level was found in a patient who had Cushing’s syndrome. There was marked osteoporosis of the spine and a moderate wedge shaped compression fracture of the T4 vertebral body but no stenosis of the canal could be observed. On the grounds of the CT findings stretching of the spinal cord caused by the rapidly evolving kyphosis of the thoracic tract has been thought to be the responsible factor of the clinical deficits.
