Examination : M.R.I. of Pelvis.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O left gluteal injection abscess 6 months back. I & D done on 00.00.00.
C/O discharging sinus since 1 month.
M.R.I of the pelvis was performed using the following parameters:
6 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
6 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick STIR coronal images.
6 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is seen a linear tract in the left gluteal region postero-laterally. The opening of the tract is at a level about 4.5 cms inferior to the iliac crest and its depth is about 6.0 cms. The tract is hypointense on the T1 Weighted images and hyperintense on the STIR images and is limited to the subcutaneous fat in the left gluteal region. No collection/cavity is noted in the left gluteal region. The underlying left gluteal muscles show normal signal intensity. The visualized hip joints and the sacro-iliac joints are unremarkable.
No obvious abnormality is detected in the pelvic cavity.
The MRI features suggests a sinus tract in the left gluteal region with extensions as described. The sinus tract is limited to the subcutaneous fat.
