Abstract
Intraspinal gas collection is rare and also can be a cause of lumbar radiculopathy. Occasionally, the gas formation makes a severe pain which results from nerve root compression. We report a patient who had a radiculopathy caused by the gascontaining cyst in L3-L4 associated with severe spondylosis.
