Spontaneous and continual epidural hematoma (SSEH) within the lumbar backbone is uncommon, and idiopathic and continual SSEH within the lumbar backbone is extraordinarily uncommon illness. Most of lumbar SSEH had been acute and secondary with trauma, hematologic problems, drug, and surgical process. Solely 20 instances of continual SSEH within the lumbar backbone have been reported and 14 instances amongst them had been thought of to be idiopathic. Definitive pointers for administration of this situation usually are not clear and surgical whole evacuation was carried out in many of the instances. Some authors reported the epidural bleeding originates within the rupture of Batson’s plexus attributable to an increase in intra-abdominal strain, however the mechanism is just not clearly clarified. We report a surgical case of idiopathic and continual SSEH. A 61-year-old lady suffered a sudden onset of extreme lumbar ache throughout sleep. She had no historical past of trauma, spinal surgical procedure, or hypertension. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a lumbar continual epidural hematoma which compressed the dural sac behind and prolonged from L2 to L5. This affected person underwent the partial evacuation of the hematoma with partial hemilaminectomy on left at L2/three, leading to rapid ache reduction and backbone of signs and virtually absorption of the hematoma inside 1 week of the process. We offered this uncommon case and reviewed idiopathic and continual epidural hematoma within the lumbar backbone.
