Infectious spondylitis accounts for 4 - 8% among suppurative diseases of the musculoskeletal system, and its frequency is estimated at 1.0 - 2.5 cases per 100,000 population. A special form of spondylodiscitis - acute post-manipulation spondylodiscitis - is observed in one of 40-50 patients who underwent discectomy from the posterior approach for a herniated disc, which, given that this operation is the most frequent in neurosurgery, allows one to assess the total volume of the problem.
