Last revised by Dr Mostafa El-Feky on 09 Mar 2020

Lumbar Scheuermann disease is a type of variant Scheuermann disease where there is no abnormal kyphosis. This has been reported in the lumbar spine and thoracolumbar junction of patients of all ages, and back pain may be present.

On imaging, affected individuals can have vertebral endplate changes, disc space narrowing, and anterior Schmorl nodes, but not otherwise fulfilling Sorensen criteria for the Scheuermann disease ​2.
