Posterior Limbus Vertebrae-MRI
Limbus vertebra develops in the immature skeleton due to focal herniation of the disc through the vertebral endplate, isolating fragment of the peripheral secondary ossification center (ring apophysis). The majority involves the anterior margin of the endplate, although posterior limbus veretbrae are not exceedingly rare. Posterior involvement may have neurological implications due to compression and/or inflammation of nerve roots.
