A man with a short history of lower back pain

A previously fit and well 69 year old man presented to his general practitioner with a four week history of lower back pain. He had no history of trauma, took no regular drugs, was an ex-smoker, and did not drink alcohol. Physiotherapy, sought privately, had provided no benefit. His GP prescribed painkillers and reviewed him two weeks later, at which point, with no improvement in symptoms, spinal radiography was organised. Radiography showed multiple compression fractures of vertebrae T11-L2 (fig 1⇓; arrows).
