Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine showing a T11-T12 spondylodiscitis. Sagittal T2-weighted, T1-weighted and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted sequences demonstrate mirror oedema (hypersignal T2, hyposignal T1 enhancing after contrast injection) of vertebral adjacent endplates (inferior endplate of T11 and superior endplate of T12) surrounding the intervertebral disk T11-T12, which has decreased T2 signal. There is no soft tissue or epidural extension of the inflammation. With courtesy of Dr. S. Lamer (CH Courbevoie-Neuilly)
