A 74-year-old patient presented with isolated fecal incontinence 6 weeks following endovascular aneurysm repair. The delayed presentation of spinal cord ischemia was precipitated by commencement of alpha-blockers for benign prostatic hyperplasia. This case stresses that vulnerability to spinal cord perfusion is not limited to the perioperative period. In addition, systemic arterial pressure should be closely monitored in cases of marginal vascular insufficiency of the spinal cord. © 2019 Aljarrah et al.
