Gadolinium enhancement in the center of a spinal epidural hematoma in a hemophiliac

J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1993 Mar-Apr;17(2):321-3. doi: 10.1097/00004728-199303000-00028.


Spinal epidural hematoma (SEH) is an uncommon complication of hemophilia. It is a neurologic and neurosurgical emergency and prompt diagnosis is imperative. The utility of MRI in the diagnosis of hemorrhage is well established. We present a case of an SEH in a hemophiliac patient that demonstrated gadolinium enhancement.
