Spinal subarachnoid hematomas are rarely seen in clinical practice and are usually associated with a variety of predisposng factors. The occurrence of spontaneous spinal subarachnoid hematoma of unknown pathogenesis is extremely rare. The authors report a case of spontaneous and idiopathic spinal subarachnoid hematoma on 1st and 2nd thoracic vertebrae. The patient felt sudden both shoulder pain and upper back pain. The magnetic resonance image(MRI) confirms focal mass in left ventrolateral spinal canal displacing cord posterolaterally. We operated immediately and patient's neurologic symptoms and signs were improved.
