Protrusion of the structure identified here (yellow-white) beyond its normal anatomic borders in an adult is most likely to produce:
1. abdominal pain
2. uremia
3. sciatica
4. bowel infarction
5. dyspnea

Answer: #3: Sciatica, why? Herniation of the intervertebral disk can result in pressure upon spinal nerve roots. This herniation most often occurs in the lower lumbar region, resulting in pain felt in the leg.
