MetadataShow full item record
Dear Editor, A 70-year-old female patient was seen three days after hospitalization to the neurology ward with a transverse myelitis pre-diagnosis based on the spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed in another center (Figure 1). Her symptoms of lumbar and back pain had initiated 5 days ago and then weakness in legs were added. The patient was admitted to our clinic after her clinical status worsened and diffuse spinal subdural hematoma and subtle spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) between T1- T11 levels were detected in contrast-enhancing spinal MRI (Figure 2). In a neurologic examination, she was paraplegic, she had urinary and fecal incontinence, and deep tendon reflexes of lower extremities (patella and achilles reflexes) were decreased.
