Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzajlmn / M / 11 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzwadekar
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O weakness of BLE with bladder involvement since 7 days.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
9 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is slight increase in the diameter of the dorsal spinal cord which shows hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted images, centrally extending over D1 to the tip of the conus medullaris (isointense to the normal cord on the T1 Weighted images).
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. 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-L2 level.
T2 Weighted sagittal images of the cervico-dorsal region, reveals the signal change extending into the cervical region upto the C1-C2 level.
Altered signal in the cervical and dorsal spinal cord extending over the C2 upto the conus medullaris as described most likely represents myelitis in the given clinical setting.
