  • Henry Vernon Crock


This condition is characterized by gross narrowing of one affected disc space, with sclerosis of the adjacent vertebral bodies. Occurring commonly as an isolated affection in an otherwise normal lumbar spine, even late in life, it is seen most commonly at L5/S1, occasionally at L4/5 and rarely at L3/4.
