The pattern of sensory loss was assessed in 210 cases of syringomyelia. Dissociated sensory loss occurred in 49% of cases, indicating that its occurrence is not a necessary finding for the diagnosis of syringomyelia. Syringomyelia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all cases of spinal cord disease.
