Neymar Fracture-Radiology

Brazil superstar Neymar will miss the remainder of the World Cup with a broken bone in his back. This is the CT image released by the Brazilian TV and shared on Daily Mail. Read more: Daily Mail UK

There is a break in pars interaticularis, and likely indicates spondylolysis.  I personally believe this represent an acute on chronic injury. The lesion of the pars interarticularis in spondylolysis is generally considered to result from mechanical stress to that portion of the neural arch. Wiltse et al suggested that most cases of isthmic spondylolysis should be considered fatigue fractures caused by repetitive load and stress rather than a single traumatic event, although a single traumatic event may result in completion of the fracture already developing.
