What does L5-S1 central disc protrusion abutting the thecal sac without spinal stenois mean? I have severe pain down my left leg when standing/walking
Disc protrusion: The L5-S1 disc is very susceptible to protrusion since it gets more load than most other lumbar discs. The disc is abutting the spinal canal's covering (thecal sac) without impinging on the canal itself (without stenosis). Your neurologist might suggest approaches like muscle strengthening exercises & physical therapy to help address your pain. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/herniateddisk.html ...Read more

When that cell divides and forms an embryo, every one of the cells in the baby's body have that extra 21 chromosome. There are rare cases where a baby inherits an extra part of the 21 chromosome from one of it's parents. The extra genes on the 21 chromosome cause the down syndrome. ...Read more

None of the above: Down syndrome happens when an extra 21 chromosome is present in all the cells of the body.

It has nothing to do with traits or mutations in the gene code. ...Read more
