Abstract

A patient with an untreated breast carcinoma and a clinically minimally symptomatic, extradural spinal cord compression secondary to metastatic disease is described. The observation of an abnormally distended urinary bladder on a bone scan led to the prompt diagnosis and successful treatment of a total spinal cord block.
