Papilledema as a manifestation of a spinal subdural abscess.
J Neurol Sci. 2007 Sep 15; 260(1-2):288-92.JN

Abstract

Papilledema is an uncommon presentation of spinal cord processes. Spinal subdural abscess (SSA) is a rare site of post-operative infection. We report a patient who developed papilledema as the primary manifestation of a post-operative lumbar subdural abscess. A spinal abscess should be considered in the post-operative spinal surgery patient who develops papilledema in the setting of persistent back pain. The increased intracranial pressure associated with lumbar spinal cord abscess most likely results from a markedly elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein or the disruption of CSF flow in the spinal cul-de-sac.
