Mendel first described arachnoiditis in 1908. In this condition arachnoid gets thickened and it becomes adherent to the cord and other coverings of spinal cord. Spinal arachnoiditis is much more common than its cranial counterpart, it may be localized or generalized. Symptoms are caused by mechanical compression of cord, roots or by interference with the blood supply. Clinical and radiological presentation of arachnoidits solely as a prolapsed intervertebral disc is rare and the present paper lays stress on this aspect.
