Özet

Reported here is a 47-year-old man with ochronosis and ongoing low back and leg pain symptoms who underwent low back surgery due to lumbar disc hernia. Presenting this patient, we caution clinicians to consider ochronosis in the differential diagnosis of lumbar discopathy, and we would like to emphasize again the roles of x-ray imaging as an initial diagnostic method and conservative treatment before surgical interventions for relevant pathologies.
