The most common cause of acute paraplegia (or quadriplegia, if the cervical cord is involved) is spinal cord trauma, usually associated with fracture-dislocation of the spine. Less common causes are hematomyelia due to a vascular malformation, an arteriovenous malformation of the cord that causes ischemia by an obscure mechanism, or infarction of the cord due to occlusion of the anterior spinal artery or, more often, to occlusion of segmental branches of the aorta (due to dissecting aneurysm or atheroma, vasculitis, and nucleus pulposus embolism).
