Syringomyelia is a chronic and progressive disease of the spinal cord. The etiology is not very clear. The lesion is characterized by the formation of tubular cavities in the spinal cord (mainly gray matter) and the proliferation of glia (non nerve cells). It often occurs in the cervical spinal cord. When the lesion involves the medulla oblongata, it is called medullary cavity.
