Paediatric spondylodiscitis (SD) (discitis) is a rare bacterial infection involving the inter-vertebral disc space and adjacent vertebrae. The non-specific manifestations of SD can lead to delayed diagnosis, which may ultimately result in spinal deformities and even devastating neurological complications. The main purpose of this review is to discuss the epidemiology, clinical, laboratory and radiological features, management and outcome of paediatric SD to help paediatricians recognise and treat this important condition.
