Abstract

As described in the literature, spinal cord compression by extramedullary hematopoietic tissue rarely occurs in thalassemic patients. Laminectomy and/or radiotherapy are the main approaches. We report on a patient with thalassemia intermedia who developed paralysis of both lower extremities due to the compression of the spinal cord by extramedullary hematopoietic tissue.
