Name of the Patient : Abc XyzMlmn / M / 25 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervico-dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain with difficulty in walking and straining while passing urine since 2 months.
M.R.I of the cervico-dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
7 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
The dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images.
There is an extradural/extramedullary mass lesion in the spinal canal anteriorly extending over the D1 to the D5-D6 level. This lesion is slightly hyperintense to CSF on the T1 Weighted images and turns hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. There is posterior displacement of the cord over these levels. The cord signal over these levels cannot be ascertained with any degree of certainty.
There is slight posterior scalloping of the D3 and D4 vertebral bodies.
The visualized cervico-dorsal vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
An extradural/extramedullary mass lesion in the spinal canal anteriorly extending over the D1 to the D5-D6 level. The differential diagnosis would include :
1. Arachnoid cyst.
2. Neurentric cyst.
