Abstract

This case report details a 50-year-old male presenting with traumatic onset low back pain complicated by underlying pathology, namely progressive systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). The symptoms, pathology and radiographic changes associated with scleroderma are discussed. Furthermore, relevant amendments to the plan of management (secondary to the symptoms of scleroderma) that were necessary to successfully treat the low back pain are detailed.
