Cauda Equina Syndrome Misdiagnosis

ParalysisCauda equina syndrome (CES) has many different causes. Some medical professionals fail to recognize these causes and paralysis occurs. If you suffer from CES and you believe that your medical professional failed to recognize it, you may have a misdiagnosis of cauda equina syndrome medical malpractice claim.

The causes of cauda equina syndrome are:

  • Tumors or lesions
  • Trauma or major injuries
  • Complications with injections near the spine
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Inflammatory conditions

The signs of CES are plentiful:

  • Muscle weakness in the lower body
  • Incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Reflex issues

If these sensations and causes are present, a doctor should order an MRI or CT scan and surgery should follow. Treatment and full recovery are possible if it is diagnosed early enough. If not, paralysis is imminent.
