117 Possible Causes for Schmorl's Nodes

  • Osteoporosis

    The traces of Schmorl's nodes were also visible in the upper two lumbar vertebrae.[doi.org] In the final case, the centrally indented body of the 4th lumbar vertebra contained a Schmorl's node.[doi.org]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    Schmorl's nodes are sometimes widespread in die spines of patients with hyperparathyroidism.[healio.com] Structural weakening of the vertebral bodies can permit herniation into the disk space (Schmorl's nodes).[healio.com]

  • Scheuermann's Disease

    To report an unusual neurologic complication caused by traumatic disc herniation through atypical posterior Schmorl's node (SN) opening into the spinal canal in lumbar Scheuermann's[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All had various disk problems including Scheuermann's disease, Schmorl's nodes and limbus vertebrae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A unitary concept of childhood lumbar disc disease, Schmorl's nodes and Scheuermann's disease is suggested.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Osteochondrosis

    These consisted of a “classic” Scheurermann's and an “atypical” type characterized by vertebral end plate changes, disc space narrowing, and anterior Schmorl's nodes, but[doi.org] In addition, the X-ray will show if there are Schmorl's nodes (the small herniations of disc through the endplates of the vertebrae).[web.archive.org] Schmorl's nodes are areas where the disc (cushion) between each affected vertebra pushes through the bone surface at the bottom and the top (endplates) of the vertebra.[web.archive.org]

  • Osteomalacia

    Osteomalacia means "soft bones". Osteoid is the bone protein matrix, composed primarily of type 1 collagen. When there is insufficient mineral or osteoblast dysfunction, the osteoid does not mineralize properly, and it accumulates. The unmineralized osteoid has consistency similar to the tip of the nose, instead of the[…][courses.washington.edu]

  • Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

    Osteopenia and osteoporosis are two disorders caracterized by bone density loss. Osteopenia has no recognizable symptoms. There is no noticeable pain or change as bone becomes thinner. However, the risk of fractures is increased due to reduced bone density. Osteoporosis remains asymptomatic until skeletal[…][symptoma.com]

  • Kyphosis

    These abnormalities are called "Schmorl's nodes".[web.archive.org] nodes (herniation of disc into vertebral endplate) any neurological symptom or deficit warrants evaluation with MRI Treatment Nonoperative stretching, observation, physical[orthobullets.com] In addition, the X-ray will show if there are Schmorl's nodes (the small herniations of disc in the endplates of the vertebrae).[web.archive.org]

  • Lumbar Radiculopathy

    This case highlights recent reports emphasizing the clinical pain syndromes possibly associated with Schmorl's nodes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a rare case of lumbar spinal radiculopathy caused by a tunneling Schmorl's node originating from the superior endplate of the L3 vertebra of a 75-year-old patient[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Schmorl's nodes (SNs) are described as vertical herniation of the disc into the vertebral body through a weakened part of the end plate that can lead to disc degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classification of Schmorl’s nodes of the lumbar spine and association with disc degeneration: a large-scale population-based MRI study.[scoliosisjournal.biomedcentral.com]
