A sudden paralysis struck the 19-year-old boy

In Phu-Tho, a 19-year-old man was experiencing leg pain but chose not to seek medical attention. Two weeks later, his condition worsened and he became paralyzed, losing movement and feeling in both legs.

Dr. Vi Truong Son, Head of the Surgery Department at Phu Tho General Hospital, explained that an MRI scan revealed an epidural tumor pressing on the patient’s spinal cord, leading to paralysis. A surgery was performed to remove the tumor and decompress the spinal cord, with no lasting effects for the patient. The tumor was identified as a benign schwannoma.

After surgery, the patient’s legs began regaining feeling and movement. With a combination of rehabilitation exercises and physical therapy, he is expected to recover the ability to walk normally soon.

Spinal cord tumors are typically benign, but as they grow they can compress the spinal cord and nerves resulting in limb weakness. It is important for individuals experiencing symptoms such as back pain, limb weakness or numbness in the limbs to seek medical attention immediately in order to prevent serious consequences. Timely examination and treatment are crucial in managing conditions like these.
