For the management of refractory radicular pain, traditional injection techniques such as transcaudal or translumbar epidural steroid injection may be indicated. This epidural injection, done blindly, may result in improper needle placement. Fluoroscopically guided transforaminal epidural steroid injection and computerized tomography-controlled periganglionic foraminal steroid injection are selective nerve blocks. These procedures are useful for the diagnosis. The advantages of these procedures are precise anatomic location provided by fluoroscope or CT.

Intraforaminal or periganglionic steroid injection is useful in the treatment of radicular pain. Thus we introduce a case of selective epidural steroid injection in a patient with refractory radicular pain.

Key Words: Refractory radicular pain, Selective epidural steroid injection
