Abstract

Limbus vertebrae is an intraosseus herniation of the nucleus pulposus through the vertebral apophyseal ring before the complete fusion of the vertebral body. Although many cases are asymptomatic, there are an increasing number of studies that associate limbus vertebrae with low back pain or radiculopathy. We present a limbus vertebrae case in a 11-year-old patient. The added eosinophilia finding made us rule out other clinical entities.
