i was wondering what would happen if a small piece of skin was pushed into the spinal cord for example during a lumbar puncture. could it be possible that this piece of skin could grow within the spinal cord and possiblely interfere with the cords function as it grew. i know this is ifs and buts but any comments regarding this would be much appreciated.
