Spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas are a rare presentation in children with very few case reports of spontaneous spinal hemorrhage in the pediatric age-group. There has to be a high index of suspicion of spontaneous spinal bleed in patients with acute-onset quadriparesis with no prior history of bleeding or trauma, as early diagnosis and surgical decompression is associated with better neurological outcomes.
