PMID:  8278864     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Discitis after intradiscal injection of chymodiactin is nearly always associated with an infection introduced by the needle tip. The authors report a patient with a postchemonucleolysis spondylodiscitis who recovered complete without surgery or antibiotics. The clinical findings and results of CRP and MRI suggested an aseptic spondylodiscitis due to chymodiactin.
