Some people with syringomyelia never develop symptoms or complications. In very rare cases, cysts formed by this disorder will disappear without any treatment at all. In other people, syringomyelia may lead to severe pain and permanent damage to the spinal cord and nervous system. Serious complications from this condition include scoliosis, which is a curving of the spine, and Horner syndrome, which results in damage to the sympathetic nerves running from a person's brain to their eyes and face.
