Multiple thoracic disc herniations are rare, and few reports exist in the literature. Diagnosis of these herniations is often missed because of their lack of specific clinical presentation. They may be treated conservatively or surgically. We presented a 35-year-old woman with five contiguous level thoracic disc herniations. She was admitted with upper back pain. Magnetic resonance imaging showed disc herniations at levels T6-7, T7-8, T8-9, T9-10 and T10-11. All were left sided and on the same line in the sagittal plane. The patient underwent conservative treatment. This report presented an unusual case and discussed its mechanisms.

Keywords: Magnetic resonance imaging, multiple disc herniations; pain; thoracic disc herniation.

Çok seviyeli torakal disk hernileri nadirdir ve literatürde az sayıda yayın vardır. Çok seviyeli torakal disk hernilerinin spesifik klinik tablosu olmadığı için, tanısı genellikle gözden kaçar. Biz beş komşu seviyeli torakal disk hernisi olan 35 yaşında bir kadın hasta sunduk. Hasta üst sırt ağrısı ile başvurdu. Manyetik rezonans görüntüleme T6-7, T7-8, T8-9, T9-10 ve T10-11 seviyelerinde disk hernilerini gösterdi. Tüm disk hernileri sagittal planda sol tarafta ve aynı hatta dizilmişti. Hastaya konservatif tedavi uygulandı. Bu yazıda sıradışı bir olgu sunduk ve mekanizmalarını tartıştık.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Manyetik rezonans görüntüleme, çok seviyeli disk hernileri; ağrı; torakal disk hernisi.
