Hi Karen,

I got the answer to my question about HEREDITARY issue ...

The second major form of syringomyelia occurs as a complication of trauma, meningitis, hemorrhage, a
tumor, or arachnoiditis. Here, the syrinx or cyst develops in a segment of the spinal cord damaged by one of
these conditions. The syrinx then starts to expand. This is sometimes referred to as noncommunicating
. Symptoms may appear months or even years after the initial injury, starting with pain,
weakness, and sensory impairment originating at the site of trauma.

Hi thirupathi,

I am Annemarie from the Netherlands. I don't know if you are able to go on the internet and have acces on Pub Med. When you put in the search machine Syringomyelia due to tuberculosis, there are a lot of articles for you to read.
