Acute transverse myelitis is a rare clinical entity characterized by sudden onset of sensori-motor paralysis due to complete spinal cord dysfunction below a definite level, usually on the trunk. It may be precipitated by a number of conditions, especially vaccinations. Though hepatitis B vaccination can result in transverse myelitis, its occurrence following acute hepatitis B infection has never been described. Moreover, transverse myelitis presenting with features of syringomyelia is rare. We report the case of acute transverse myelitis associated with hepatitis B infection, which was clinically misdiagnosed as a syrinx.
