Charcot's Elbow Following Syringomyelia

Revisited

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Neuropathic arthropathy of the elbow joint is uncommon with a reported incidence of 3-8%only. The natural history, pathogenesis and management approaches are debatable with an absence of clear guidelines. We report two cases of Charcot's elbow following syringomyelia with ulnar nerve manifestations. One patient required debulkingsynovectomy and ulnar nerve decompression while the other was managed conservatively. The article aims to enrich the limited knowledge of managing Charcot's elbow.
