dc.description.abstractWe report a 36-year-old man who developed a large epidural and paraspinal abscess as a complication of infliximab therapy being used for underlying Crohn's disease. Cultures of the collection grew methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus, and treatment consisted of abscess drainage, prolonged intravenous and oral flucloxacillin and temporary withholding of his infliximab. While infection-related complications are well described with infliximab therapy, this is the first description of a large paraspinal abscess with epidural extension.-
