Dorsal Dermal Sinus with Epidural Abscess-MRI
Extramedullary T1 hypointense and T2 hyperintense lesion at the level of D5-D6 vertebral level measuring 1.8 x 1.1cm with linear tract in the posterior spinal region. There is resultant cord compression and anterolateral displacement of the spinal cord at this level with altered intramedullary cord signal intensity. These findings possibly indicate dorsal dermal sinus and associated epidural abscess.
