Baastrup's syndrome or “kissing spine” is a common pathology of the vertebral column among the various conditions of the degenerative spine disorders. This syndrome is generally missed by clinicians; therefore, it is underdiagnosed and subsequently mismanaged. We report the case of a 61-year-old female who presented with chronic, ongoing, low back pain of several years duration who had been managed conservatively by various specialities over the last few years with no improvement.
