The Editor

 Sir,

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.
