Abstract: Epidural abscess is a relatively uncommon disorder. Although the surgical management is the mainstay of treatment, there are case reports of it being managed conservatively in selected patients. We report a patient who presented with quadreparesis due to epidural abscess and had infective endocarditis due to Staphylococcus aureus septicemia. Both epidural abscess and infective endocarditis were managed conservatively with intravenous antibiotics given for four weeks, with complete recovery of patient.
