There have been few descriptions of spontaneous epidural hematoma of the spinal cord in children. Duration of symptoms in previous cases has varied from hours to days. We recently evaluated a 6-year-old girl with cord compression from an extradural clot, who complained of thoracic back pain for 3 months before becoming paraplegic. Our experience suggests that spontaneous epidural bleeding may be responsible for episodic back pain and cord compression in children.
