Abstract

Pediatric idiopathic intervertebral disc calcification (PIIVDC) is a rare condition; most cases are reported to be selflimited with conservative management. In this study, we describe a case of PIIVDC presenting with acute incomplete spinal cord injury with Brown-Séquard-plus syndrome that was treated with surgery and demonstrate the subsequent rehabilitation time course.
