Intradural Lumbar disc herniation (IDLDH) is a known rare subgroup, accounting for 0.3% of all disc herniation. The incidence of IDDHs in 50-60 year olds is 2.2%, while that of 40-50 is only 0.2%. Most cases of reported intradural disc herniation (IDDH) are in the lumbar spine (92%), especially at L4-5 level (55%) with some reports in the cervical (5%) and thoracic (3%) spine. Chronic disease process is postulated as a possible etiology of the condition in most of the cases. We present a case of IDLDH in a patient with HIV infection as a possible etiological factor.
