Abstract
A spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) is a rare disease that accompanies severe axial pain in the spine with various levels of paralysis depending on the location of the hematoma. A SSEH is mainly caused by a coagulating disorder or anticoagulants medication, while certain cases relate this disease with spinal inflammatory conditions. The early diagnosis of a SSEH is important for its treatment. Most cases with neurologic symptoms can be treated with an immediate laminectomy and decompression. If the neurologic symptom improves within 12 hours, a conservative treatment is effective; however few cases have been reported. We report this case with a review of the relevant literature.
Key Words: Antiplatelet agent, Spinal apoplexy, Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma
