    Cases of post-traumatic syringomyelia could not be diagnosed until the advent of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In recent years, the incidence of detected cases of post-traumatic syringomyelia has increased. MRI has suggested an incidence of up to 22%. We describe a 21-year-old female who...
