Spinal epidural abscess is a rare condition that can have different outcomes, from minimal involvement without sequela, to major motor impairments, limiting the patient's functional independence and, therefore, causing a strong negative impact on the quality of life. This study describes the evolution of a patient throughout his hospital stay. The subject underwent intensive motor physiotherapeutic treatment, where his initial functional clinical condition was of total dependence to perform activities of daily living and motor skills. At the end of the treatment, there was a significant improvement in motor skills and functionality, highlighting the fundamental role of acutely initiated physiotherapy.
