Abstract

Background: Traumatic spinal SAH with neurologic deficits is rare and easily misdiagnosed, especially after traumatic intracranial hemorrhage. Case Description: We report a case of spinal SAH with root compression occurring after a scooter accident. Conclusions: Physicians should be aware of descending migration of intracranial SAH as a possible cause of spinal cord or root compression, especially in the patient with late onset spinal symptoms.
