H.V. Crock (1976) described a lesion at the lumbosacral [L5-S1] disc which was degenerative in nature with characteristic features reduction of disc height, sclerosis of end plates, degenerative changes in apophyseal joints, retrolisthesis, and traction ostepohytes. It affected L5-S1 disc only while other discs at proximal levels were normal. We report a series of 27 patients of isolated disc sorption seen during 1996 to 1998. There were 20 females and 7 males, their age ranged from 30 to 83 years. They presented with low back pain, sciatica, and often with claudication of varying severity and duration. The symptoms arose from L5-S1 level in almost all cases. The treatment has been conservative primarily, and 3 cases were advised surgery.
