FULL TEXT  


Disc herniation is a common pathology associated with physical trauma or degenerative diseases. The authors present the case of a patient with 8 disc herniations without known risk factors or other associated pathologies except for a long story of type II diabetes. Basing on studies reported in literature, it can be assumed that diabetes may be the reason of multiple disc herniations in this case.
