Though spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a very uncommon cause of spinal cord compression, early correct diagnosis is crucial for final clinical outcome. A case of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma with similar clinical presentation to transverse myelitis was reported. Careful clinical correlation and multiple sequences of spinal magnetic resonance images are critical factors for early diagnosis.
