Pneumorrhachis Case Report

Mak Moayedi, MD, and Lisa Babin, BS, a 2016 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, published a case report, “Pneumorrhachis Secondary to a Sacral Decubitus Ulcer,” in the July issue of the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine. It describes the rare finding of gas in the spinal canal, produced as direct extension from organisms causing vertebral osteomyelitis.
