Spontaneous resolution of a large spinal epidural hematoma: case report.
Neurosurgery. 1996 Apr; 38(4):816-8.N

Abstract

Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a rare condition that usually requires surgical evacuation of the hematoma. We report a case of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma that was probably associated with aspirin intake. The initial clinical signs and symptoms included sharp, left-sided neck pain and weakness of the left arm. The initial magnetic resonance image showed a spinal epidural hematoma extending from C2 to C6, with compression of the myelon. This case is remarkable for dramatic clinical improvement within 12 hours and the magnetic resonance imaging documentation of complete resolution within 3 days. For each patient with a stable or improving neurological status, conservative management monitored by magnetic resonance imaging might be the treatment of choice.
