Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Right sided foraminal lumbar disc protrusion compressing only the exiting nerve root and not narrowing the subarticular recess. 

Case Discussion

Disc projecting into the right neural-exit foramen and compressing the exiting nerve root in this case is relatively easy to overlook if foraminal disc protrusions are not actively sought.
