STUDY DESIGN: A case report of pseudomeningocele with nerve root entrapment after lumbar discectomy. OBJECTIVES: To report a rare cause of recurrent sciatica. METHODS: A unique case of delayed nerve root entrapment within the neck of an iatrogenic pseudomeningocele is described. The relevant literature is reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: This case illustrates the possible consequences of not repairing a dural tear and reinforces the importance of a careful surgical approach to the lumbar spine.
