Background: Spontaneous epidural haematoma (SEH) is a rare condition requiring urgent diagnosis and treatment.
Case report: We presented the case of SEH with typical for angina pectoris symptoms. The quickly treatment based on angina pectoris symptoms may result in fatal consequence. The preliminary
diversity of this pathology was very difficult particularly without magnetic resonance (MRI). Typical symptoms of SEH was observed on the 3rd day. The MRI visualized epidural haematoma located in the C3-Th1 segment with the symptoms of slight spinal compression.
The conservative treatment was used.
Conclusions: The MRI examination is a method of choice to diagnose of SEH particularly in controversial cases
