L'Associazione Onlus Tarlov-Italia nasce per promuovere la ricerca su una grave patologia rara e non riconosciuta in Italia dal Ministero della Salute.
Negli U.S.A. è riconosciuta dall'Associazione americana per le malattie rare.

Per confronti, proposte, aggiornamenti relativi alla patologia è disponibile anche il FORUM TARLOV ITALIA i cui contenuti sono visibili ai soli iscritti (iscrizione gratuita su richiesta come indicato nelle informazioni del forum).
Tarlov-Italia si caratterizza come gruppo propositivo, "di iniziativa", ritenendo utile ma non sufficiente la sola dimensione di scambio di esperienze. Per questo chiediamo agli aderenti l' impegno a condividere notizie-informazioni sulla patologia, portare la propria testimonianza ed esprimersi sulle iniziative proposte.

Per ulteriori informazioni ti invitiamo a visitare e iscriverti al gruppo Facebook Tarlov Italia Onlus

 Neurological manifestations of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome(s): A review  .........Conversely, clinical practice suggests a high rate of degenerative findings, in the form of generalized, early-onset spondylosis and disc hernias, at spine MRI. However, this evidence remains anecdotal81 and needs systematic confirmation. Spine MRI may also show meningeal cysts as reported in a 7-year-old girl with kyphoscoliotic EDS,82 in an adult with classic EDS83 and, with a low frequency, in JHS/EDS-HT.84 In EDS, meningeal (or Tarlov) cysts are apparently rare and very few or single. The 40-year-old woman with multiple and bilateral Tarlov cysts along the entire spine and originally defined an example of (unclassified) EDS by Isono et al.,85 can be best labeled with the diagnosis of lateral meningocele syndrome,86 an apparently distinct form of hereditary connective tissue disorder with severe thecal involvement.87 The clinical significance of meningeal cysts is still unknown in EDS, although a link with orthostatic headache due to spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leaks may be inferred,88,89 similarly as in Marfan syndrome. The concurrence of Chiari malformation (Type I) is a further apparently underreported feature of EDS, as to date observed in single patients only.45,46 Nevertheless, in a surgically-oriented paper on hundreds of patients originally ascertained for symptomatic Chiari malformation, a subgroup of them, showing a high rate of recurrence after surgery and multiple features of an underlying connective tissue disorder, presented minor, but measurable neuroradiologic features of occipitoatlantoaxial instability: posterior gliding of the occipital condyles, and reduction of the clivus-axis angle, clivus-atlas angle, and atlas-axis angle in the upright position.90 In line with this, an early report describes two vascular EDS patients with radiologically evident atlantoaxial subluxation.91 Hence, investigating for cerebellar tonsils herniation and an occult occipitoatlantoaxial instability is relevant during the assessment of patients with occipital or postural/orthostatic headache, and/or additional unexplained neurological symptoms, such as upper limb paresthesias and weakness........
