This case involves a female patient with a medical history significant for multiple sclerosis. The patient had suffered a spinal injury after a fall while at home, after which it was discovered that she was suffering from stenosis, or narrowing, of her spinal canal. In order to treat her stenosis, the patient underwent surgery, which initially proved to be successful. However, the patient began to experience back pain shortly after surgery, which progressively worsened while she was under the care of a new physician. Eventually, imaging studies of her spine revealed suspected bone chips in her spinal canal, which appeared to have broken off from her vertebrae. Doctors eventually diagnosed her with cauda equina syndrome, however delayed surgical intervention left the woman paraplegic with little hope for recovery.
