Ho Young Lim, Choong Kyum Park

ABSTRACT
We must once consider spondylitis, if the patient complains of severe back pain and back muscle spasm following a more or less improvement after disk surgery. The etiology of these postoperative complications is not well understood in suspected cases of spondylitis, but the most likely causes reveals to be low grade infection, aseptic necrosis and pyogenic infection etc. Conservative treatment with complete bed rest and antibiotics led to satisfactory results in major cases, but there is no improvement in spite of application strong antibiotics and muscle relaxant in some cases. In later cases, we got the good results with immediate pain relieve and reducing hospital day by anterior interbody fusion. So we report 4 cases of aseptic spondylitis with review of literature.
