Abstract

Spontaneous spinal epidural haematoma (SSEH) is uncommon, but central gadolinium (Gd) enhancement of the haematoma is even rarer. To our knowledge, only one case has been reported, but no explanation was given concerning the mechanism of this enhancement. We present a case of SSEH with unusual central Gd enhancement which we believe is due to oozing from the injured posterior internal venous plexuses. Therefore, although rare, central Gd enhancement of an epidural mass should not rule out the possibility of a haematoma.
