Resumo: Sequelae of the traumatic injuries to the spinal cord represent a high personal, family and social damage. Since 1984, it has been investigated and considered that the treatment with sodium succinate methylprednisolone in high doses was a solution to revert or to prevent the aggravation of such injuries. We present a revision of literature on this subject. It is well established that this therapeutic has a high rate of complications, but concerning its advantages and real effectiveness, there is no agreement between paper authors. While some defend it, others state that this is a total contraindication in this pathology. There are already some medical centers worldwide that do not use it. In Portugal, the practice of its administration is generalized. Not to do it could be difficult to defend in a litigation situation. But are we really helping our patients with it?
