Figure 1: Collection in anterior epidural space at L3 level with edema in L3 vertebral body

Mentions: Magnetic resonance imaging revealed epidural hematoma at multiple levels extending from L3 to S1 [Figures 1–4]. Patient was operated upon, and hematoma was evacuated. Postoperative period was uneventful. On follow-up after 3 months, she had partial recovery. Patient was advised follow-up in neurosurgery but she never turned up after 3 months.
