Abstract

Abscess formation in the spinal epidural space is a rare lesion. Despite modern medical advances, the morbidity and mortality rates asseciated with spinal epidural abscess remain significant, and the diagnosis is often elusive. Post-traumatic epidural abscess of the cervical spine is reported in a 51 year old man. RM imaging of the spinal cord allowed for prompt diagnosis. At the operation the culture of the abscess drainage grew Escherichia Coli.
