Abstract

Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis are both conditions occurring in pediatric and adult patients. Spondylolysis can lead to isthmic spondylolisthesis, but not all patients with spondylolysis develop spondylolisthesis. Older patients can develop spondylolisthesis from advanced degenerative disease.
