Ultrasonography (USG) is becoming increasingly important in visualizing the musculoskeletal system. It is used as a diagnostic guide and in local injection procedures but is less frequently applied in visualizing deep joints and injections. The purpose of this study is to describe the results of USG-guided facet joint injection in a 19-year-old male patient with low back pain for the preceding year and a preliminary diagnosis of facet syndrome, together with a review of the literature.
