This condition is characterised 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 spine, even late in life, it is seen most commonly at L 5/S1, occasionally at L4/5 and rarely at higher levels in the lumbar spine (Figs. 1.1,2).
