Diagnosing and Treating a Spinal Epidural Abscess

For a patient who is suffering from a spinal epidural abscess, it’s crucial to get the correct diagnosis as quickly as possible. When discovered early, doctors can usually treat a spinal epidural abscess with antibiotics. In some cases, a combination of surgery and antibiotics is required. But when treatment is delayed, complications may include bacterial meningitis, paralysis, brain damage, and death.

It’s important for the doctor to review the patient’s medical record and ask about their medical history. Factors that increase the likelihood that a patient is suffering from spinal epidural abscess include spinal injury, bacterial infections, immunodeficiency, blood or bone infection, IV drug use, and diabetes.

The following diagnostic procedures may be required to diagnose a spinal epidural abscess.

  • A physical examination
  • A CT scan
  • An MRI scan
  • Tests of fluid from the abscessed areas
  • Blood tests
