Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzuddin Anlmn / M / 24 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzidhungat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervico-dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O acute onset of paraplegia with bladder involvement since 00.00.00.
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.
There is seen an ill-defined, hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted images in the cervico-dorsal spinal cord, centrally extending over the C6 to about the D9 vertebral levels. This lesion appears iso to hypointense to normal cord on the T1 Weighted images. Slight increase in diameter of the cervico-dorsal spinal cord over the C6 to D5 vertebral levels is noted.
A small, postero-central protruded disc is noted at the C7-D1 level.
The visualized cervico-dorsal vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The visualized cervico-dorsal intervertebral discs show loss of water content. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
Altered signal in the cervico-dorsal spinal cord, centrally extending over the C6 to about the D9 vertebral levels, as described, most likely represents myelitis, in the given clinical setting.
