Arachnoiditis of spinal cord

Spinal arachnoiditis, also known as adhesive spinal arachnoiditis, is a chronic inflammatory process of the arachnoid. Under the action of some etiology, it gradually thickens the arachnoid, causes damage to the spinal cord and nerve roots, or forms a cyst to block the medullary cavity, or affects the blood circulation of the spinal cord, and finally leads to dysfunction. The age of onset ranged from 30 to 60 years old, with more males than females. The lesions were more common in the thoracolumbar segment.
