Abstract

Spinal cord infarction is rarely seen in children. They could present clinically with either anterior or posterior cord syndrome. Apart from clinical features, MRI is an important modality to investigate the same. However, usually, only T1, T2 and FLAIR imaging is done for the cord. In this case report, we tend to prove that DWI and ADC maps are important modalities of spinal cord imaging. Using these sequences in routine could help in accurate diagnoses of the cause of myelopathy.
