Maigne's Syndrome

Maigne Syndrome

Maigne syndrome, also referred to as thoracolumbar junction syndrome, manifests as discomfort in the lower back, hip, groin, and buttocks due to irritation or compression of nerves originating from the thoracolumbar spine region where the lower thoracic spine intersects with the upper lumbar spine. It can stem from various causes such as spinal degeneration, trauma, or repetitive strain, leading to symptoms characterized by sharp or burning pain along with possible sensations of tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected regions.

What Causes Maigne Syndrome?

Maigne syndrome, alternatively known as thoracolumbar junction syndrome, arises from the irritation or compression of nerves originating in the thoracolumbar spine region. Common causes of this syndrome encompass:

  • Spinal Degeneration: This is a prevalent trigger, particularly among older individuals. Deterioration of spinal discs or joints in the thoracolumbar region may result in nerve irritation or compression, eliciting pain and related symptoms.
  • Trauma: Injuries to the thoracolumbar region, such as those sustained from falls, car accidents, or sports injuries, can provoke Maigne syndrome. Trauma may inflict nerve damage or induce inflammation that irritates the nerves.
  • Repetitive Strain: Engaging in repetitive movements that strain the thoracolumbar area, such as heavy lifting, bending, or twisting, can also incite Maigne syndrome. These activities exert pressure on the nerves in the region.
  • Structural Abnormalities: Anomalies in the thoracolumbar region’s structure, such as a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or scoliosis, may contribute to Maigne syndrome by exerting pressure on the nerves.
