Abstract

We present a rare case of a patient initially presenting with unilateral abdominal wall bulging and radicular pain caused by a lateral disc herniation at Th11/12, later suffering from a hernia recurrence with bilateral disc prolapse and motor deficits. The patient underwent sequesterectomy via a right hemilaminectomy at Th11, and after 8 weeks, a bilateral sequesterectomy with semirigid fusion Th11/12 was performed. Unilateral motor deficits at the thoracic level have been discussed in case reports; a bilateral disc protrusion with abdominal wall bulging occurring as a recurrent disc herniation has never been described before.
