Rare Endocrine-Metabolic Causes of Spinal Cord Injury, pp. 519-533 $100.00
Authors:  James K Schmitt
Endocrine-metabolic disorders may cause spinal cord injury by several mechanisms.
Direct effects of hormone excess may cause bony overgrowth such as occurs in acromegaly
or osteopenia and fractures such as occurs in hyperparathyroidism. Similarly, hormone
deficiency may cause bone abnormalities or calcium deposition and cord compression such as
occurs in hypoparathyroidism.
Endocrine malignancies can metastasize to the spinal cord and spinal nerves. These may
be tumors such as follicular carcinoma of the thyroid gland, or malignancies that produce
ectopic hormones such as ACTH secretion by small cell carcinoma of the lung.
Finally, endocrine processes may cause weakness and paralysis which mimics cord
compression, such as occurs in thyrotoxic paralysis, or hypoglycemia
