This 64-years old man had fever and backache. An MRI of Oct 2017 showed some osteophytosis centred at the dorsolumbar junction, but no other abnormality.
A PET/CT done on 01 Dec shows uptake along the area of new bone proliferation at this level.
A CT scan done at the time of biopsy shows focal osteolysis with a discovertebral lesion at D10/11. A biopsy was done from the osteolytic lesion and the perivertebral soft tissue.
It shows MSSA – methicillin susceptible staphylococcus aureus
