Abstract

The authors report an unusual case of venous infarction of the spinal cord associated with endoscopic sclerotherapy for esophageal varices. MR imaging findings included signal abnormalities and abnormal enhancement of the affected spinal cord and T-8 vertebral body. A review of the hemodynamic changes associated with portal hypertension and the normal venous drainage of the spinal cord is presented.
