We have previously reported that MPV is decreased in nasal polyp patients compared to control subjects. We are grateful to Erdur et al for precious criticism of this article. First of all, we agree with Erdur et al in terms of MPV has not been fully elucidated as an inflammatory marker in certain circumstances.

The pre-existing spinal pathologies may increase the incidence of severe neurological complications, (1, 2). Here, we report a patient without an obvious symptom of the spinal cord or root compression previously who developed paraplegia early following epidural anaesthesia, which was possibly caused by an undiagnosed metastatic spinal tumour.
