Description

Kummel disease was first described by Hermann Kummell in 1891 as delayed posttraumatic vertebral collapse occurring weeks or months after an often minimal injury. The mechanism is still debated. These lesions are most widely believed to be secondary to delayed osteonecrosis of the vertebral body, potentially related to vascular disruption of the anterior watershed territory of the vertebral body following trauma. It is a rarely reported entity, which likely occurs more frequently than recognized.
