Spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas are a rare cause of spinal cord compression. These are typically isolated events. Recurrent spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas have been reported only in two instances in adults. There have been no reports of recurrent spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas involving a child. This report details the case of a 10-year-old female with a recurrent spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas who presented with two episodes of transient lower extremity paralysis, 2 months apart, followed by a third episode a year later which resulted in permanent paralysis.
