Hello..... Although most people with transverse myelitis have at least partial recovery, the process may take a year or more....steroids and plasmapheresis is done for symptomatic treatment.. Minimal residual effect will be there in most of transverse myelitis cases.. Rapidly progressive disease have worse prognosis.
