Seronegative spondyloarthropathy-related sacroiliitis: CT, MRI features and differentials.

Prakash D, Prabhu SM, Irodi A - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2014)

Bottom Line: Seronegative spondyloarthropathy is a group of chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases that predominantly affect the axial skeleton.Involvement of sacroiliac joint is considered a hallmark for diagnosis of seronegative spondyloarthropathy and is usually the first manifestation of this condition.We present a pictorial essay of CT and MRI imaging findings in seronegative spondyloarthropathy-related sacroiliitis in various stages and highlight common differentials that need to be considered.

ABSTRACT
Seronegative spondyloarthropathy is a group of chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases that predominantly affect the axial skeleton. Involvement of sacroiliac joint is considered a hallmark for diagnosis of seronegative spondyloarthropathy and is usually the first manifestation of this condition. It is essential for the radiologist to know the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of spondyloarthropathy-related sacroiliitis as imaging plays an important role in diagnosis and evaluation of response to treatment. We present a pictorial essay of CT and MRI imaging findings in seronegative spondyloarthropathy-related sacroiliitis in various stages and highlight common differentials that need to be considered.

Stress fracture. (A) Oblique coronal STIR MR image in a 70 year old female with left hip pain shows minimal degree of edema in the subchondral region in left sacrum (white arrow). (B) Corresponding T1W coronal image without fat suppression shows hypointense fracture line (white arrow)

Figure 16: Stress fracture. (A) Oblique coronal STIR MR image in a 70 year old female with left hip pain shows minimal degree of edema in the subchondral region in left sacrum (white arrow). (B) Corresponding T1W coronal image without fat suppression shows hypointense fracture line (white arrow)

Mentions: Stress fracture [Figure 16]: Stress fractures can present with unilateral or bilateral sacral bone marrow edema. Non-involvement of iliac surface and visualization of the distinct fracture line helps in differentiation
