Lumbar disc herniation is the most common cause of radiculopathy. In most cases, the chief complaint is associated with radicular pain due to nerve compression on the herniated side. However, a radicular pain contralateral to the herniation side is an unusual finding rarely reported in the literature. Here, a case of right lower limb radicular pain in the presence of left extruded L4-L5 disc herniation is reported. Management of the patient is discussed in addition to a review of the literature regarding hypotheses on the mechanism of this unusual situation.
