T1 MRI
T2 MRI




































A 21-year-old man was admitted with bilateral lower extremity weakness and low-back pain.Plain radiograph was performed prior to MRI.
Sagittal T1-weighted and T2- weighted Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study was performed after taking plain radiograph.

What are the abnormalities in these images and what is the most likely diagnosis? 

ANSWER

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study showed involvement of the Th 7, 8, 9, 12 and L3 vertebrae. Th7 and Th 8 vertebrae were destructed with collapse of the Th7-8 and Th 8-9 intervertebral disc spaces. Paravertebral and epidural abscesses were also detected at the same level. The spinal cord was compressed to the posterior by expanding epidural abscess. Postgadolinium images showed intense homogenous enhancement at epidural lesions and intense heterogeneous enhancement at paravertebral lesions. Involved vertebrae also enhanced.
