A posterior epidural lesion appearing isointense on T1W, markedly hypointense on T2W images, and areas of 'blooming' on GRE images is seen. Peripheral contrast enhancement may be due to dural inflammation secondary to hematoma.
This is a case of spontaneous epidural hematoma in the cervical spine.
Drainage of hematoma was done promptly, and the patient recovered on post-operation Day 1.
