There was osteophytic bulge with ligamentum flavum thickening at c4-c5 and c5-c6 levels causing spinal canal and bilateral neural foraminal narrowing with nerve root impingement. Blood tests showed Hb-16.5, calcium-7.5, serum albumin-1.2, and globulin-4. Urinary albumin +++. Urinary 24hr protein was 7.81 gram. On skeletal survey no lytic lesion was found.
