  • 1Department of Neurology, College of Medicine, University of Ulsan Asan Medical Center, Korea.


Spontaneous spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage is unusual, accounting for less than 1% of all cases of subarachnoid hemorrhge. Very rare cases have been reported that they had no definitive etiology of spontaneuos spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage. One patient with spontaneous spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage is presented to emphasize the clinical and radiological features of this uncommon illness. The patient had severe back pain at the onset and was unable to walk. The s!mtoms improved slowly with conservative treatments. Complete blood work up CSF culture and spinal angiogrphy failed to reveal a cause for the hemorrhage. This is believed to be the first case report of spontaneous spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage of unknown cause in Korea.
