Increased Metabolic Activity in the Spinal Cord of Patients with Long-Standing Lhermitte’s Sign

To investigate the pathophysiology of the radiation-induced, chronic Lhermitte’s sign (LS) on the basis of long-standing case histories with partial functional recovery. As radiotherapy in two nasopharyngeal cancer patients, a biologically effective dose (BED) of 103.8 Gy2 (case 1) and 94.8 Gy2 (case 2) was delivered to the cervical spinal cord.
