A case report of a spinal epidural haematoma associated with warfarin therapy.
Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 2003 Jul; 85(4):277-8.AR

Abstract

Spinal epidural haematoma is an uncommon, but recognised, clinical entity that needs emergency management. The association of spinal epidural haematomata with warfarin therapy has been described and, in 1956, Alderman stated that this diagnosis should be entertained in any patient receiving anticoagulants presenting with low back pain or sciatic pain. The purpose of this case report is to increase the awareness of this entity among medical personnel and to stress the urgency of management.
