  • We present MRI findings in a patient who presented with a remote cervical cord injury and with onset of new symptoms. Imaging showed findings compatible with Wallerian degeneration (WD) above and below the level of the original injury. We review the pathogenesis of spinal cord WD and its implications. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
