To this point, 7 instances of spinal major MALT has been reported earlier than. Nonetheless, there is no such thing as a consensus on the optimum adjuvant remedy modalities for major spinal MALT. The goal of this research was so as to add a brand new case of MALT which responded nicely to systemic remedy to the literature and to evaluate the present literature.
PATIENT CONCERNS: A 68-year-old lady visited to our hospital on account of again ache and progressive bilateral decrease extremity weak point for two months.
