Abstract

This is a case report about spinal cord ischaemia (SCI) in a 47-year-old woman with no known cerebrovascular risk factors. SCI is a rare entity with debilitating consequences, which typically presents with acute pain corresponding to the involved cord level, followed by flaccid paralysis, decreased sensation and autonomic dysfunction. The most common cause is aortic atheromatosis. Progression of symptoms, normal cerebrospinal fluid analysis and MRI are of key importance for the diagnosis of this entity, yet the latter can initially be normal. Anticoagulant therapy is the initial treatment of choice followed by long-term rehabilitation.
