Neurosurgery

Spinal epidural abscesses (SEA) are an infrequent disease which should be suspected in patients with spinal and/or radicular pain, neurologic deficits and fever.

We present 3 patients with SEA (two lumbar and one dorsal) who recovered following exclusively antibiotic treatment.

The complete disappearance of the abscess was proven by magnetic resonance. Patients with SEA and discrete, stable deficits and with known germs, are susceptible to medical and not surgical treatment.
