ABSTRACT
Pan spinal epidural abscess is rare in a young healthy adult and may lead to permanent neurological deficits and meningitis if not treated promptly. A case is described of a pan spinal epidural abscess, from C1 to S1, in a young, healthy adult without risk factors that presented with ascending back pain and no fever. The abscess was diagnosed with MRI and treated with hemilaminotomies, surgical drainage, and antibiotics with a satisfactory outcome. The literature is reviewed herein.
