We present a patient with intractable neuropathic pain because of idiopathic transverse myelitis unresponsive to medical treatment. After a successful trial of spinal cord stimulation, a permanent stimulator was implanted. Improvement was noted in visual analogue scale, medication usage and daily function. Spinal cord stimulation may offer a therapeutic option for patients with neuropathic pain resulting from transverse myelitis and should be considered when other treatments are failed.
Key Words: Neuropathic pain; Spinal cord stimulation; Transverse myelitis
