Hi

I have been found to have one that runs from T4-T9. I did have a MVA but my consultant seems to think mine may be congenital and an incidental finding. For me unfortunately  it doesn't explain all my symptoms  so still searching for answers.  I have also found a couple articles in the Brain journal which talk about syrinxes and how they may be as a result of MS pathology sometimes.
