Authors: Somanchi BV, Mohammad S, Ross R
The authors present a case in which paraplegia developed following administration of caudal epidural steroid injection (ESI) and discuss the different pathophysiological mechanisms involved. The authors strongly recommend that 0.5% bupivacaine should be used with caution for caudal epidural injection.
