Spontaneous lumbar epidural hematoma-MRI
These are sagittal MRI T1 and T2 weighted images of lumbar spine revealing posterior epidural hematoma which was surgically confirmed and drained. This old patient presented with sudden onset paraparesis. Appearance was isointense to hypointense on Ti weighted image and hyperintense with hypointense areas on T2-weighted images which are highly suspicious for the diagnosis.
