The authors report on a case of a spondylodiskitis in three year old child. Diskitis is an inflammatory process of the intervertebral disk space, not often described in pediatric age. The etiology is infective and generally presents with lumbar spine localization. Clinically it is characterized by lumbar pain at times radiating to a lower extremity. Symptoms are aspecific and radiological signs do not appear for several weeks after the onset of symptoms. Interest in this pathology derives from the fact that it may be more common than previously recognized. This case offered us the opportunity to review principal symptoms of diskitis and to describe the main diagnostic technics used.

Abstract

The authors report on a case of a spondylodiskitis in three year old child. Diskitis is an inflammatory process of the intervertebral disk space, not often described in pediatric age. The etiology is infective and generally presents with lumbar spine localization. Clinically it is characterized by lumbar pain at times radiating to a lower extremity. Symptoms are aspecific and radiological signs do not appear for several weeks after the onset of symptoms. Interest in this pathology derives from the fact that it may be more common than previously recognized. This case offered us the opportunity to review principal symptoms of diskitis and to describe the main diagnostic technics used.
