Pediatric lumbar disc herniation: A case series on diagnosis and management – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

This article presents four rare cases of lumbar disc herniation in children. Despite being uncommon, pediatric disc herniation can cause significant symptoms and impair daily functioning. The exact prevalence rate of this condition in children is unknown. The patients in the study all experienced low back pain that radiated down to their legs, along with other neurological symptoms. Trauma and family history were ruled out as risk factors. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) confirmed the diagnosis in all cases. Conservative treatment did not improve symptoms, so minimally invasive discectomy with foraminotomy was performed. The article highlights the importance of early identification and appropriate management for pediatric patients with lumbar disc herniation. Further research is needed to understand the risk factors, underlying mechanisms, and optimal treatments for this condition in children and adolescents

ABSTRACT

Pediatric disc herniation is an uncommon but significant illness in children that can cause debilitating symptoms. The prevalence rate of lumbar disc herniation in this group is unknown. We present 4 rare cases of lumbar disc herniation in children. All patients complained from low back pain with radiation to the corresponding leg along with other neurological manifestations. Trauma and family history for all patients were negative. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was performed for all patients and confirmed the diagnosis in all cases. All patients were treated conservatively without any improvement, thus surgical intervention (minimally invasive discectomy with foraminotomy) was performed. The importance of early identification and adequate care in pediatric patients with lumbar disc herniation cannot be overstated. More study is needed to better understand the risk factors, pathophysiology, and best treatments for this illness in children and adolescents.
