Hepatic myelopathy (HM) is a rare neurological complication of the chronic liver disease usually seen in adults and presents as a disabling progressive pure motor spastic paraparesis, which is almost always associated with overt liver failure. We report a case of a 45-year-old male who presented with rapidly progressive spastic paraparesis due to HM and features of hepatic decompensation (postnecrotic cirrhosis), who presented with the second episode of hepatic encephalopathy. Patient had not undergone any shunt procedure.
