Spinal epidural hematoma associated with Paget's disease

Surg Neurol. 1988 Aug;30(2):131-4. doi: 10.1016/0090-3019(88)90098-5.


Although increased skeletal blood flow in the bone involved by Paget's disease is well described, spinal hemorrhage in association with that disease has not previously been reported. We report a patient with Paget's disease of bone who developed a subacute epidural hematoma of the lumbar spine.
