Abstract The authors report a case of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma causing paraplegia secondary to a qualitative platelet disorder from excessive garlic ingestion. The case also demonstrates satisfactory recovery from thoracic spinal epidural hematoma in a nonagenarian. Recovery from severe spinal cord compression can occur even in the very elderly.
