Also known as: transverse myelitis, TM.
Myelitis is a medical term that refers to the spinal cord when it becomes inflamed. When the inflammation spreads across a larger segment of the spinal cord quickly, it’s known as acute transverse myelitis.
Acute transverse myelitis often occurs as a complication to other diseases, such as viral infections, multiple sclerosis or autoimmune disorders. In rare cases, some vaccinations can cause the disease.
