Abstract A 71-year-old man experienced gradually progressive leg weakness, urinary retention, and mild loss of sensation in dermatomes T8 through T12 bilaterally. After 5 to 6 weeks of illness, he developed flaccid paraplegia and sensory loss below T8. He died 16 weeks after onset of neurological symptoms. Neuropathologically, there was widespread, subtotal necrosis of the spinal cord, largely of nonhemorrhagic character, from T8 downward. Dorsal and anterior median spinal veins were occluded by a partially organized thrombus. Comparison of this case with 19 previously recorded examples of venous infarction of the spinal cord (8 hemorrhagic, 7 nonhemorrhagic, and 4 embolic) suggests major differences in clinical presentation, rate of progression, and length of survival among the three groups.
