The Filum Disease arises due to an anomalous traction exerted by the filum terminale ligament. Its symptoms and signs involve the entire nervous system, the cranium and the vertebral column. The three disorders are expressions of this disease and can share the same symptoms.

Arnold Chiari Syndrome I


Headaches, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, neck pain, dysphagia, insomnia, concentration and memory alterations.

The Arnold Chiari Syndrome I consists in a descent of the lower part of the cerebellum, the cerebellar tonsils, into the spinal canal through the foramen magnum, without any other medullary-vertebral malformations.

Idiopathic Syringomyelia


Thermal and tactile sensitivity alterations, paresthesias, gait alteration, instability and limb pain.

Syringomyelia consists in a liquid cyst inside the spinal cord, which is a result ofthe death of spinal cord tissue occurring as a consequence of the lack of bloodflow due to the traction exerted by a tight filum terminale.

Idiopathic Scoliosis


Lower back pain, upper back pain, neck pain, headaches, gait alterations, inability to move because of back pain and paresthesias.

Scoliosis consists in an anomalous lateral misalignment of the vertebral column, which is the result of a mechanism to compensate thespinal cord traction produced by a tight filum terminale.
