Epidural abscess and vertebral osteomyelitis induced by epidural injection is rare but one of the most serious complications. A 58-year old woman complained of aggrevating radicular pain to bilteral lower legs, tenderness on coccygeal area and claudication, after epidural injection for management of intractable sciatica. MRI and ultrasound revealed epidural abscess compressing dural sac at the level of L5-S1 vertebral body, sacrococcygeal abscess, and later S5- 1stcoccyx osteomyelitis. We report epidural abscess and vertebral osteomyelitis induced by caudal epidural injection. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2008; 32: 357-360)
Key Words: Vertebral osteomyelitis, Epidural abscess, Epidural injection
