We report a case of herniated lumbar disc with sequestrated fragments which were located posterior and lateral to the thecal sac. A 60-year-old woman developed lumbago and sciatica one year prior to presentation and acute exacerbation occurred recently. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a mass that was located posteriorly and laterally to the dural sac at the L3-4 level. Laminectomy at L3-4 was done and several fragments were easily separated from the left posterolateral and posterior aspect of the dural sac. Microscopic evamination revealed disc fragment.
Key Words: Intervertebral disc; Dorsally sequestration; Magnetic resonance imaging
