Spinal Cord Compression

Metastatic epidural spinal cord compression is a medical emergency of individuals with cancer. Metastatic epidural spinal cord compression is the third most common cause of adult compressive myelopathy, after acute trauma and degenerative etiologies. In individuals with systemic cancer it is one of the most common neurologic complications, following the brain parenchymal metastases. Epidural spinal cord compression can be caused by metastases from most primary malignancies. Solid tumors of the lung, breast, prostate and kidney, lymphoma and sarcoma, however, have a higher predisposition for spinal metastases. Improved imaging techniques, clinical awareness are helpful treatments for metastatic epidural spinal cord compression.
