  • Look Inside


Most cases of spinal epidural abscesses occur in a midthoracic or lower lumbar location. Cervical spinal epidural abscess is distinctly rare, and its prognosis is not favorable due to respiratory problems. We report a case of cervical spinal epidural abscess.

A 77-year-old male was admitted because of tetra-paresis and dyspnea.
