A 46-year-old woman presented to our emergency department with sudden onset of lower extremity weakness after physical activity. She referred only dorsal back pain before these symptoms. Neurologic examination revealed weakness 2/5 of lower limbs, hyperreflexia of deep tendon reflex of lower limbs, hypoesthesia under D7 level, and no sphincteric dysfunction. A computed tomography scan showed an accentuation of trabecular markings within the vertebral body and areas of lysis ([Figs. 1A] [F]). Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance images show diffuse abnormal marrow signal throughout the T6 vertebral body with epidural components with spinal cord compression ([Fig. 1B] [H])

Abstract

A 46-year-old woman presented to our emergency department with sudden onset of lower extremity weakness after physical activity. She referred only dorsal back pain before these symptoms. Neurologic examination revealed weakness 2/5 of lower limbs, hyperreflexia of deep tendon reflex of lower limbs, hypoesthesia under D7 level, and no sphincteric dysfunction. A computed tomography scan showed an accentuation of trabecular markings within the vertebral body and areas of lysis ([Figs. 1A] [F]). Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance images show diffuse abnormal marrow signal throughout the T6 vertebral body with epidural components with spinal cord compression ([Fig. 1B] [H])
