Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzinkumar Milmn / M / 11 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sacrum.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to BLE since 1 month.
H/O swelling over the low back since birth.
M.R.I of the sacrum was performed using the following parameters:
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
Vitamin E capsules were placed as markers at the site of suspected lesion.
There is an ill-defined, hypointense signal on the T1 Weighted images in the subcutaneous fat in the dorsal surface of the low back, in the region of the sacro-coccygeal junction. This signal remains predominantly hypointense on the T2 Weighted images. The lesion is seen to reach upto the sacro-coccygeal vertebrae. There is no definite extension into the spinal canal. The thecal sac terminates at the S2 vertebral level.

There is no focal area of altered signal in the visualized sacro-coccygeal vertebrae. The visualized sacro-iliac joints are unremarkable.
Altered signal in the subcutaneous fat in the dorsal surface of the low back, in the region of the sacro-coccygeal junction as described may represent a fibrous/sinus tract, or an inflammatory granuloma. There is no evidence of tethering of the spinal cord, or an intradural lipoma.
