Abstract

The authors report a rare case of recurrence of lumbar nerve root compression caused by herniated intradiscal gas treated surgically with resolution of pain symptoms. They describe the possible causes of the formation of gaseous material reported in the literature. They believe that to avoid recurrence it is important to associated removal of the hernia with complete emptying of the disc and resection of the posterior longitudinal ligament.
