Abstract

Spontaneous epidural hemorrhage is one of the rare neuropathic pain etiologies. In this case, a 68-year-old patient, who had atrial fibrillation and cardioversion history, is evaluated for neuropathic pain due to spontaneous epidural hemorrhage that arose from oral anticoagulant therapy. As well as being unique in etiologic terms, we thought it is an uncommon occasion for management worth sharing.
