Children presenting with calcified disc herniation: a self-limiting process.

Author information

  • 1Department of Radiology, Riley Hospital for Children, Indianapolis, USA.


We present two cases of disc herniation associated with juvenile intervertebral disc calcification, a rare, self-limiting process which typically resolves with conservative treatment. Recognition of this entity prevents unnecessary diagnostic workup and possible surgical intervention. A review of the literature for this rare entity is discussed.
