This is open to children 0-17 years of age at illness onset, or within six months of diagnosis. It is studying the long-term outcomes of pediatric transverse myelitis (TM) and acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) to guide future clinical trials for children...
Transverse Myelitis. Hemisensory level. The revised McDonald criteria affirmed that a radiographic abnormality that corresponds to the correct anatomic location meets this criteria (i.e., T2 hyperinensity in spinal cord is objective evidence of myelitis)
These cervical cord images of a 26 year old woman with transverse myelitis as an early presentation of her MS disclose two distinct lesions, one centered at the C3 and another at the C4 levels of the cord. The higher cord lesion shows ring enhancement...

Transverse myelitis
Transverse myelitis is a rare neurological condition in which the spinal cord is inflamed. Transverse implies that the inflammation extends horizontally across the spinal cord. Partial transverse myelitis and partial myelitis are terms sometimes used to specify inflammation that only affects part of the width of the spinal cord. TM is characterized by weakness and numbness of the limbs, deficits in sensation and motor skills, dysfunctional urethral and anal sphincter activities, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system that can lead to episodes of high blood pressure. Signs and symptoms vary according to the affected level of the spinal cord. The underlying cause of TM is unknown. The spinal cord inflammation seen in TM has been associated with various infections, immune system disorders, or damage to nerve fibres, by loss of myelin. As opposed to leukomyelitis which affects only the white matter, it affects the entire cross-section of the spinal cord. Decreased electrical conductivity in the nervous system can result....
