Diagnosis: Burst fracture from spinal tuberculosis
Sagittal (A, B) and axial (C, D) T2 (A, C) and post contrast T1 (B, D) weighted images of the lumbar spine demonstrate destruction of L3 vertebral body (A, white arrow) with gibbus formation and retropulsion of bony fragments with compromise of the central canal at that level (A, black arrow). There is fluid signal within the disc space that communicates with bilateral psoas abscesses (B, C, D, white asterisks), and pathologic enhancement is noted following contrast administration (B, D). These are typical features of spinal tuberculosis (Pott`s disease).
