Abstract:
Acute cauda equina syndrome secondary to a spinal epidural abscess as a result of a psoas abscess is very uncommon. We report the case of a 64-year old with a 6-day history of left hip pain, which progressively worsened until she presented to the emergency department with systemic infective symptoms and classical acute cauda equina syndrome. A good clinical outcome was achieved by urgent posterior decompression, followed by CT-guided drainage of the psoas abscess and appropriate antibiotic treatment.
