BACKGROUND Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality (SCIWORA) is not uncommon among middle-aged and elderly people. It is less reported in adults as compared with children. This study was undertaken to find the incidence, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) changes, and outcome of SCIWORA in adults and to demonstrate the prognostic value of MRI in SCIWORA. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty adult patients who sustained SCIWORA for a period of 2 years (January 1999 to December 2000) were… CONTINUE READING
