It is known that the patients with chronic low back or neck pain has different spatiotemporal characteristics than healthy controls such as average speed, cadence, step length parameters. Patients with chronic neck pain (CNP) or Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) also experience fatigue while performing daily living activities.

We report the case of a patient suffering from hidradenitis suppurativa since puberty and complaining of chronic low back pain associated to altered sensitivity and muscular weakness in the right leg. A diagnosis of lumbosciatica was confirmed. Symptoms were not relieved after the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics. A surgical decompression was then indicated but heavily debated. Indeed, extended inflammatory and fibrotic hidradenitis suppurativa lesions were located regarding the skin area eligible for the proposed surgery. A combined therapy with clindamycine/rifampicin was started and the surgery...

Modic changes cannot be considered a sign of bad prognosis by themselves, or an indication for surgery.ResumenObjetivoValor de los cambios Modic a 10 años en la evolución del dolor lumbar y requerimiento quirúrgico.Material y métodoEstudio observacional longitudinal de cohortes prospectivo.
