A case of hematogenous pyogenic spinal infection . (A) Preoperative lateral radiograph showed obvious disc space narrowing with endplate erosion at L4-5, and focal kyphosis (B) MRI revealed L4-5 infectious spondylodiscitis. (C) Postoperative lateral radiograph demonstrated the presence of anterior interbody fusion with allograft and percutaneous posterior pedicle screw. (D) Postoperative lateral view at two-year follow-up revealed bone union without progression in focal kyphosis.
