Comma tract of schultze

Comma tract of schultze –>
semilunar fasciculus
a compact bundle composed of descending branches of posterior root fibres located near the border between the fasciculi gracilis and cuneatus of the cervical and thoracic spinal cord; it corresponds to the septomarginal fasciculus, Hoche’s tract, or oval area of flechsig in the lumbar, and to the triangle of Philippe-Gombault in the sacral spinal segments; like these, it can be demonstrated only in cases of demyelination resulting from dorsal root lesions.
Synonym: fasciculus semilunaris, fasciculus interfascicularis, comma bundle of Schultze, comma tract of schultze, interfascicular fasciculus.
