Abstract

Patients with Baastrup disease may experience pain owing to irritation of the periosteum or adventitial bursae between abutting spinous processes. We are not aware of any reports in the literature that describe stress fractures of the spinous fractures in patients with Baastrup disease. In this case report, we present two cases of spinous process fractures in lumbar vertebrae associated with Baastrup disease and describe their appearance with conventional radiography, bone scintigraphy, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
