The article presents spinal magnetic resonance images showing an extradural hemorrhage extending from C4 to S1 in a four-month old boy. The boy was diagnosed with hemophilia A. His clinical condition improved following treatment with clotting factor. In this case, non-surgical, conservative management is safe for a spinal extradural hematoma in patients with hemophilia.
