A Case of Acute Paraplegia

Join us to explore spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma through a captivating case study of acute paraplegia in a middle-aged woman who presents with rapid onset of back pain, progressing to lower limb weakness and urinary retention, devoid of alleviating factors. Explore the rarity of this condition and its causes, including trauma and spinal surgery, with a rare spontaneous occurrence. Understand the typical presentation, which often includes severe back and/or neck pain and learn about the pivotal role of MRI and CT scans in making an accurate diagnosis. Delve into the treatment landscape, from surgical intervention to conservative approaches like immobilization and neurotropic agents, all while focusing on the prognosis for patients with this condition.
