Epidural anaesthesia (EA) is an extensively used procedure for many surgeries. Increase incidence of bleeding in the epidural space [epidural haematoma (EH)] is reportedly more common in patients with altered coagulation and patients on anticoagulation treatment. EH secondary to spinal while intending EA for caesarean section (C-section) in a healthy individual leading to transient or persistent neurological problems is very rare. We report a case of EH after spinal while intending EA for C-section in a healthy young female along with 5-yrs follow-up after conservative treatment.
