Figure 4: (a and b) Sagittal T2W image (4a) shows old compression/collapse of D11 and D12 vertebrae and mild anterior wedging of L1 vertebra. Also there is evidence of grade I anterolisthesis at L5-S1 level with compression of bilateral L5 exiting nerve roots in neural foramina (not shown). Coronal STIR image shows extensive inflammation in right iliac fossa and along right psoas muscle. Subsequent imaging and surgery confirmed the diagnosis of complicated appendicitis
