Schmorl node


Clinical correlation:

The patient had unremarkable bloods including a negative TB quantiferon assay. Normal CT abdomen / CT IVP and normal colonoscopy.

Repeat imaging and follow up:

There was an interval decrease in edema and enhancement within the T11 vertebral body between the initial MRI scan and one performed 3 months later. No other new abnormalities demonstrated. This strengthens the favored diagnosis of resolving inflammatory changes of a Schmorl node.
