Brucellar spondylitis mimicking lumbar disc herniation. Case report.
Paraplegia. 1995 Mar; 33(3):167-9.P

Abstract

In this paper, a patient with brucellar spondylitis who was initially diagnosed as having a lumbar disc herniation is presented. As the disc tissue enlarges in the early stages of discitis because of the inflammatory reaction, it may compress the related root(s) mimicking a disc herniation. For this reason infectious discitis, as in our case, should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of the radicular symptoms caused by a disc herniation. The crucial role of magnetic resonance imaging in making the differential diagnosis of the case is especially emphasized.
