Question

This is the scenario: A doctor suspects that Mr. D is having multiple

nerve transmission problems as manifested by his patient's symptoms. Preliminary neurological tests indicate that he has functional deficits, therefore further testing is ordered. The CT scan and MRI reveal that a tumor is blocking specific thoracic areas left dorsal horn and left dorsal column corresponding to vertebral levels of T1-T2. You may refer to a dermatome map to visualize the level of injury.


Please help me answer this question. My class has just started being lectured about sensory receptors and pathways and I do not have a full grasp on this subject yet. Please provide explanations to everything as well so I can learn from this and apply to my next quiz: Diagram and completely label all the pathways that would be affected by the 2 blocked areas and mark with an "X" and "Y" where the damaged areas are located.  You may refer to a dermatome map to visualize the level of injury.
