A review of the literature points to the many causes of arachnoiditis and the failure of treatment to arrest or reverse its effects. The true incidence cannot be determined, although it is probably lower than might at first appear from the published articles. In the radiological literature the diagnosis seems to derive from an examination of the films alone, often without reference to the clinical findings or appearance at operation. While attempts at treatment are usually unsuccessful, some iatrogenic cases can be prevented by the avoidance of intrathecal steroid injections or unduly rough or repeated surgical exploration of the lumbar vertebral canal.
