Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / F / 22 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc XyzV. Shah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to BLE with paresthesias.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is anterior wedging of the D11 and L1 vertebral bodies. The cortical endplates however, appear intact. The adjacent intervertebral disc spaces are reduced in height.
Small posterior peridiscal osteophytes are seen at the D11-D12,
D12-L1 and L1-L2 levels.
The dorso-lumbar intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The visualized dorso-lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
The cervico-dorsal region was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which does not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of wedging of the D11 and L1 vertebral bodies without change in signal intensity and such features may be seen with mucopolysaccharidosis.
