Pyogenic infection of the spinal column is a relatively rare condition.
Spondylodiskitis is characterized by infection of the intervertebral disk and the
adjacent vertebrae. Diagnosis is often delayed because the symptoms are often
nonspecific and also because of the high incidence of nonspecific low back pain
in the general population. We report the case of a 42-year-old woman who
developed low back pain secondary to spondylodiskitis. Her diagnosis was delayed
because of a lack of supporting findings on initial magnetic resonance imaging.
The case highlights the clinical scenario in which maintaining a high index of
suspicion may lead to follow-up imaging and an accurate diagnosis. LEVEL OF
