Percutaneous adhesiolysis might be a valuable technique in managing chronic pain caused by epidural scarring. Following the percutaneous adhesiolysis, it has been reported that several complications such as dural puncture, intravascular injection, but abscess formation in the paraspinal muscles immediately after the adhesiolysis is the first case in literature.
