In brief: Spondylolysis

Literally means cleavage of the spine.
Usually involves the "pars intraarticularis". If bilateral may cause movement of the spine and segmental instability called spondylolisthesis. Symptoms can include localized pain or referred pain into buttock and legs. Nerve compression can occur causing "neurocladication" or nerve pinch problems.
