Intervertebral lumbar disk herniation in children and adolescents is rare. The incidence varies between 0.8% and 3.8% of all disks treated surgically. The uncertainty concerning operative or conservative treatment of this rare clinical entity has led to considering the use of atraumatic techniques, such as chemonucleolysis or percutaneous diskectomy. We ...
