A case of hematogenous pyogenic spinal infections. ( A) Preoperative lateral radiograph showed disc space narrowing with endplate erosion at L3-4 level, and (B) MRI revealed L3-4 spondylodiscitis. (C) Postoperative lateral radiograph demonstrated the presence of anterior interbody fusion with allograft and traditional open posterior pedicle screw. (D) Postoperative lateral view at two-year follow-up revealed union of L3-4 interbody fusion.
