Abstract:We report a case of intractable proctalgia on a background of lower back and bilateral leg pain secondary to spinal canal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. A complete resolution was observed following spinal surgery. This case highlights consideration of a spinal aetiology when intractable proctalgia is associated with back and leg pain.
