Abstract: Symptomatic disc calcifications have been reported, especially in the pediatric population, and remain of unknown etiology. Such a condition has been very rarely reported in adults. The aim of this paper is to present a case report of calcific discitis in an adult patient with intravertebral migration and spontaneous calcification resorption. The clinical presentation was that of back pain with an abrupt onset, not related to trauma or to physical activity. No fever or neurological deficits were present. Blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, routine urine, and urine culture were negative. The pain regressed in 20 days with analgesic therapy. Findings of thoracic calcific discitis are illustrated with X-rays, CT, MRI, and bone scintigraphy.
