A seven-year-old boy left paralysed after a cyst destroyed everything but a "tiny thread" of his spinal cord has stunned doctors with a complete recovery.

Marko Dutschak from Murau, Austria, was paralysed from the chest down after the procedure to remove the cyst that had crushed his spinal cord.

Chief neurosurgeon Hans Georg Eder said: "The condition had left him with a spinal cord as thin as a piece of cotton thread. There was virtually nothing left."

Local media has described the case as a Christmas miracle and neurosurgeon Eder said: "In medical terms we don't talk of miracles, but the boy's recovery was not medically expected and is really a sensation. The cyst had completely surrounded the spinal cord, which was as thin as a thread inside it.

"Yet now he has learned to walk again. It illustrates to a remarkable extent the healing abilities of the very young that greatly surpass that of adults."

His mum Sandra told local media how she arrived for a visit one morning and found Marco strolling on the balcony of his private hospital room.

She said: "This is the best Christmas present ever. We thought he would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair."


Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.
