Abstract


A 60-year-old female patient with a history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, major depression, dyslipidemia, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis and minor thalassemia on medications presented to the hospital complaining of progressive lower limb weakness over the past 10 days. An epidural injection was done as a pain control measure. She was diagnosed as anerobic spondylodiscitis. This case is unique due to the abrupt progression of the clinical picture from non to paraplegia. It is also unique in the severe destructive picture seen in the CT and MRI images done as diagnostic measures, keeping in mind that these investigations were done less than 3 weeks after the injection.
